    We're going for hay on Saturday! Which is perfect timing cause I'm down to 5 bales. :P Those chunks sure know how to eat their hay haha. Buuuut I just bought some new hay bags, so I can cut them back a little. Woohoo! And it definitely helps that I saved $30 cause I got them so cheap.

    Kayella, I use haybags and love 'em! Where did you find yours? Are they the small mesh squares? That's really what you want so they have to work a little harder at getting their hay. I found mine at Paul Taylors for around $5 so I was excited too. I did have to replace that flimsy drawstring with something a little stronger because they yank on those bags pretty good and pop the string. A cool hint that I picked up on filling them, get you a muck bucket like you find at Tractor Supply or I even use the ones you find at Walmart that look like muck buckets but they call 'em toy or laundry tubs (way cheaper at $5) and drape your haynets inside one of those when you're filling them. Makes it sooooo easy. :)

    Oh I hate those mesh haynets. They drive me crazy trying to fill them up and I'm worried my horse will get their leg and neck caught up in them and injure themselves. I have an accident-prone yearling, I try to decrease my chances of him getting hurt LOL.

    I use these bags and I LOVE them.

    Slow Feed Nylon Hay Bags by Derby Originals

    I can fit up to 3 flakes in them and it really slows down their eating(probably even more so than the nets.) They're usually $27.50, but Horseloverz.com had them in their online auction and I got three of them for $20 each. So I basically got one free at the usual price! They're a different brand so we'll see how well they hold up. The Derby brand usually lasts me 3-4 months a piece of daily use, being beat up by a yearling and a pony, and exposed to the elements 24/7.

    Hey now those are cool. Haven't seen that style before. I may have to keep them in mind when my old ones wear out. I'm not into the regular large mesh nets, but I've really had good luck with these small mesh ones and I tie them to a good strong lead rope hung on a cross beam at the front of their overhang area so they are always well above their heads. That's why I changed out the drawstring so there wouldn't be any issue. I can't believe I actually have a pic. LOL! I happened to see the haybag in this one, even if it is a little blurry. And these are about a year and a half old now too! They look a little beat up but so far they are still holding on. I take them down during the day if I get the chance. I use them at night after their dinner. I like yours though. No matter what, hay bags are the way to go if you don't mind filling them. Have y'all seen the big ones you can buy for round bales?

    Just finished an excruciating 2.5 hours at the dentist. My entire face is numb and feels huge. Once I stop drooling on myself I'll head into the office.

    Ugh. You're still heading in? That would be a total excuse to call in for me. I despise the dentist! I'm such a wheenie too because when I see what my kids are going through for their braces, I ain't got nuttin' on 'em and I had braces too when I was a kid. My 2nd son had 4 permanent teeth and 3 baby teeth pulled at ONCE via oral surgery before he had his braces due to crowding. UH UHHHH!!!!! Heck no!!! Not me!
