Model: Lined Hay Bag
Category: Stable Accessories
Purchase: I bought two of these from County Supply (horse.com) for $12 each because my horses were wasting hay by stepping on it in their stalls. They came by mail on Wednesday of last week (today is Monday).
Likes: I wish I could say something, like I like the color selection or something like that, but the truth is, they come in red and blue and Country Supply was sold out of red so I bought blue. The truth is, I like nothing about these hay bags.
Dislikes: Apart from the lack of color selection, they are horrible hay bags. The claps on the strap is very stiff and hard to use. They have a single strap rather than two, so they just twist around and make it hard for the horse to eat. Because they have a front hole and no grate on the front, the horses waste just as much hay as they were when I just threw the hay on the floor of the stall (okay, maybe a little less because the hay bags are so small that they only hold a flake of hay at a time). They're very small, and really don't fit enough hay for a full sized adult horse. Lastly, I've been using these once a day for less than a week and they are both destroyed and full of holes and rips. Now, my horses aren't super gentle but they aren't really aggressive, either. They are two average, middle-aged mares. If they can't hold up to an average horse, they aren't worth it. I'll be returning them this week.
Summary: NOT a good hay bag. I suggest Tough-1 Heavy Denier grill front hay bags. I have two of those and they are easy to fill, easy to carry, easy to attach anyplace, and don't rip! This one isn't meant for horses...maybe for sheep?
