GutzBusta® Medium Hay Nets will be your easy and handy companion when it comes to feeding your horses. 

Medium GutzBusta® Slow Feed Hay Nets will take half a small bale of hay or approximately 4 to 6 biscuits of hay. Even easier if you have 2 medium hay nets, simply put it at both ends of a small bale, cut the strings in the middle, and your nets are filled. 

  • Dimensions: 104cm wide x 89cm high
  • Hole size: 3cm, 4cm and 6cm in 60ply
  • Colour: black 

Our 3cm hay nets are now 60ply - the strongest available on the Australian market. Due to the increased thickness of this netting and therefore more material per square metre, this netting costs us more to produce and hence they are a little more expensive.

Why use GutzBusta®?

What material are the Gutzbusta® Hay Nets made from?

Our GutzBusta® Slow Feed Hay Nets are made from tough and durable, UV Stabilized, and heat-treated netting in 60ply polyethylene netting. This netting will not absorb water, therefore there is no change to the properties of the netting during inclement weather or if used to soak hay. 

What hole size will suit my horse or livestock?

Available in 3cm, 4cm, and 6cm (60ply), our Slow Feed Hay Nets are made from tough, durable, UV Stabilized, and heat-treated 60ply polyethylene netting. This netting is not water absorbent, so you don’t have to worry about your net getting heavy when soaked in water. 

3cm hole size 

This size is great for gutsy eaters, ponies, laminitic horses, or if your hay is really palatable and you want to slow consumption even more. We recommend this for horses and ponies that have tried slow feed hay nets before. While some horses may be frustrated by this size, others accept it without hesitation. 

Despite no top teeth, we also have customers whose cattle can still eat from this size with palatable hay. Available in strong and durable 60ply. 60ply is not offered by any other slow feed business in Australia in 3cm sized holes.

4cm hole size 

Our most popular hole size. 95% of horses have no trouble accepting this hole size. It's also perfect for cattle, sheep, goats, donkeys, and alpacas, too. 

6cm hole size

Works well for broodmares, old horses, young horses or any horse, cow, sheep, alpaca, or goat that you aren't trying to restrict hay consumption with, but still want to reduce hay wastage. You can also use less palatable, coarse, or stalky hay with this size. 

Note: Please make sure that the hoof size is greater than the hole size if you are allowing hoof access to this net. Hanging the net higher or putting a hay ring or physical barrier is also recommended for shod horses or if young horses have access to nets where hoof size may be an issue.

Why use a GutzBusta®?

The Medium Hay Nets have a square holed pattern and not diamond, so it doesn't matter if you have one biscuit of hay or the hay net is chock full of hay. Either way, your horse can eat out of the hay net as the holes don't collapse down on each other. 

Our products are the most generous in size and designed to be easier to put on compared to other hay nets available in the market. We’ve been making hay nets for over 10 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. 

For more information and photos about our hay nets, please visit our livestock page and our FAQ & Help page.


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.  For more safety ideas, click here.

Amazing. Exactly what I need for both my good doers, my average doers, and my laminits prone horses. These are crucial to my prevention strategies , as I do not want to see my horses suffer with any avoidable health issues, particularly laminitis, founder, colic, EMS, all these things I am able to help prevent by managing diets, grzxing, and rates of consumption by using these awesome haynets. Thanks so much Gutzbusta !

medium knotted hay net

Fast delivery of a product that was everything it was described as. It is the easiest hay net I have ever used and the goats took to it straight away. We have less hay waste and less hay on the ground means less potential for worms in the flock. I loved the tips for loading 1 bale into 2 hay nets. It has made the job even easier. Thanks :)
