Why use GutzBusta®?
For our own horses, we had a 4x4 round bale last 3 to 4 horses for 7 to 15 days with a 40mm net, depending on how cold the weather is and how palatable the hay is, so it can vary a LOT based on those conditions.
We also tested our hay net during the spring season. We had a 4x4 round bale of low-sugar hay, that lasted up to 3 months with 2 horses grazing from it as it wasn't overly palatable.
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 slow feeders hay nets for over 12 years (since 2011) 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.
Please note that each size of round bale is ‘true to size’ and if you only ever purchase 4x4 bales of hay for instance, then you only need to purchase a 4x4 hay net. Our hay nets are on the generous side, so although they won’t fit the next size up, they will allow for individual size variances depending on the farmer who makes the bales.
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 with smaller nets or 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, goats, and cattle with ear tags eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting, get entangled, or remove the ear tags.
