Horses are naturally curious and intelligent animals, and they need mental stimulation just as much as they need physical exercise. Unfortunately, many horses are bored and restless, which can lead to unwanted behaviors such as weaving, pawing, and cribbing.
One way to help keep your horse entertained and healthy is to use a hay net. Hay nets force horses to eat hay slowly, which can help to prevent weight gain, improve digestion, and reduce boredom and stress.
The HAY CHIX® Hay Net is a durable, high-quality hay net that is perfect for horses of all sizes. The net features a 1 3/4" opening that is just the right size for horses to eat hay slowly and safely. The net is also easy to attach to a trailer, eye hook, fence, or tree, making it perfect for use on the go.

In addition to keeping your horse entertained, there are many other benefits to using a hay net. Hay nets can help to:
