This haynet under the trees is better:
but not perfect because when Rosie eats from the top of it
she does this:
They have to tug at a haynet, but I had hoped to eliminate that upward jerk of the head and neck when I lowered the haynets. Ben does not seem to have this problem, being taller:
Haynets are convenient. They are quick to fill, keep hay off the ground and in one place and they slow down the rate of eating, which for Ben is essential. When Ben and Rosie are on the track full-time, and that time is approaching again, I tie two haynets under the trees and two more in the opposing diagonal corner at the highest part of the paddock. They like both areas, depending on weather, and haynets in both places keep them walking around the track. (The water is in another corner at the stable yard which encourages more movement.)
I had been going to buy smaller mesh haynets but I need to do a bit more research now.
The beauty of the internet is the amount of information at the click of a mouse. This website is a great resource for anything to do with track systems and slow feeders.
