Trickle Net “Original” Small Hole Hay Net
The Trickle Net Original is a super strong slow feeding net with 25 mm holes, which are fixed, so no stretching. This net holds approx 8.5kg dry hay, and will trickle feed your horse for hours. Ideal for horses who spend long hours in the stable, or those who need help with weight control or gut health. Recommended by vets for the management of laminitis. These nets are also ideal for feeding forage on grass free turnout or track systems.
The benefits to using Trickle Nets continue to amaze us. Saving you so much money on wasted forage and bedding, they also provide your horse with prolonged and controlled access to forage which brings many physical and mental health benefits. Grazing keeps your horse happy, and with a Trickle Net they can graze anywhere.
BUSTED: Time for a maths lesson!
A Round Bale Trickle Net costs £110
Let’s say a round bale costs roughly £40 (ours does!).
We find, when feeding 5 horses the bale lasts up to twice as long when using the Trickle Net, 6 days with a net as opposed to 3 without the net.
So if you’re saving £40 each six days, your Trickle Net has paid for itself in just 18 days!!
All of our products produce comparative results. A recent study shows the Trickle Net Original can result in an average consumption time increase of 66.4% !!
The time your bale lasts is dependent on the number of horses feeding from it and how they use it, but the ratio doesn’t change. It still lasts up to twice as long!
Each Trickle Net has been hand stitched in England to provide you with the highest quality most sturdy and robust feeding net available. The nets are made from very strong 4mm rot proof braided polyethylene in black. The hole size is 25mm and the Trickle Net® is large enough to hold 8.5kgs of dry hay. It is very easy to use and also water proof / rot proof so can be submerged for hay soaking.
These nets are super strong, heavy duty and made to do a very specific job. They do take a few weeks to ‘soften up’ and using them regularly will break them in best.
Some horses can take a few days to get used to a Trickle Net. They can’t grab and pull large amounts as they do with other nets. Your horse needs to nibble and pluck, the same method they use when grazing. We advise that you introduce any Trickle Net product beside the usual forage feeding method.
