    Anyone Ever Tried To Make a Roundbale Net?

    Hey all!
    I was just wondering if anyone had ever tried to make a round bale net. I'm not sure where I could buy the netting.
    Kinda like this: http://www.econets.ca/media/net-usage1.jpg

    Would also love to know how...I bought one from Natural horse world and I love it! I need more! Tried to price out fish netting, but was way to expensive.

    I believe some people made it with hockey nets, but I think the holes would be too big.

    I made one last spring. April I think...
    Total coat was about $30 and it is still holding together really well. Probably will have to make a new one by spring next year though.

    I had priced out the nets and was going to make one myself, but didn't want to shell out $50 to $75 for something I wasn't sure would work.
    So I made the one I pictured in this thread on the premise of a "trial" net, and it is still holding up well. Much better then I thought it would.

    I just ordered some heavy duty nylon netting and hopefully it'll be here early next week. I plan on using my horse as a guinea pig as he seems to be a big hay smasher and hopefully we can try it on my BO herd of pasture horses if all goes well.

    Hockey nets off ebay. Buy a big one and you can buy different size holes. I bought a 12x15 and just ordered another. Sewn together it should be big enough to cover my bale in the feeder. I am not going to put the bale in it.
