My horses found slow feed hay nets very frustrating and stressful. I do put my hay in nets, but I use normal 3 inch hay nets. I'd suggest buying a regular sized hay net so your horse can eat freely.

If I were you I would hang them low, but not put them on the ground. The horse is likely to get stuck in the top loop and will break the net. As they empty, they get lower and looser, so having them slightly off the ground when empty will keep the horse from getting hung up, but still allow a lowered head for eating.
