Our GutzBusta's don't get heavy when used to soak hay.
How do I decide what hole size will suit my horse or livestock?
3cm - Great for really Gutzy eaters. Ponies, laminitic horses or if your hay is REALLY palatable and you want to slow consumption even more. Recommended for horses and ponies that have tried slow feed hay nets before as some horses may be frustrated by this size, others accept it without hesitation. Despite no top teeth, we have customers whose cattle can still eat from this size net with palatable hay. Available in strong and durable 60ply. 60ply not offered by any other slow feed business in Australia in 3cm sized holes. As this material costs more, we have unfortunately had to increase our prices for our 3cm 60ply range.
4cm - Our most popular hole size. Great to slow down feeding and save on hay wastage plus many other health benefits. Available in 60ply. Good general purpose hole size, 95% of horses have no trouble accepting this size net hole. Good size for cattle, sheep, goats, donkeys and alpacas too. Common size for sheep, goats, cattle, dinkeys and alpaca's if you are wanting to slow feeding a little.
6cm - Great for brood mares, old horses or any horse, cow, sheep, alpaca or goat that you aren't trying to restrict hay consumption with but still stop hay wastage. Please note to make sure the hoof size is greater than the hole size if you are allowing hoof access to this net. A hay ring or physical barrier is recommended, or hang the net higher if this is a concern. Also great for less palatable hay, coarse or stalky hay. Available in 60ply.
