New to the GutzBusta® product range are the Knotless GutzBusta® Hay Nets.
This new super soft netting is made from 5mm thick and high strength PP (polypropylene). Like our regular knotted nets, the knotless hay nets are available in round bale, small, medium, large (with 4cm hole size). This means the new nets are still super easy to fill due to nice wide-open mouths.
This product can be thrown on the ground if your horse isn’t shod. It doesn’t have metal joints, too, so you don’t have to worry about your horses’ teeth or mouths getting injured.
We currently have black nets available for a short time and then only white will be available!

Why use GutzBusta®?
A GutzBusta® Round Bale Hay Net decreases wastage for up to 46%. In our situation, a 4x4 round bale of pasture hay can last 3 to 4 horses for 7 to 15 days with a 4cm net, depending on how cold the weather is. This rate was for Winter, however, in Summer, we found that a 4x4 lasted these horses nearly 3 months due to being low sugar/palatability.
Our products are designed with large drawstrings to secure the hay net around your round bale. It’s easier to put on compared to other hay nets available in the market. We’ve been making hay nets for over 8 years and we know how the netting behaves over time. This is why we developed a size and pattern that works to enable these nets to last longer.

It is not recommended to leave buckled halters or other types of buckled headgear on your horse when using ANY type of hay net as your horse may get caught. If your horse is shod then simply tie your net up a little higher. You can also put your net inside a box or other device that stops their feet from coming into contact with their hay net. Similarly, do not let horned animals such as sheep or goats, and cattle with ear tags eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting, get entangled, or remove the ear tags.
