Homemade Hay Nets in a Pinch

On a budget? I am. I admit, I googled how to make a hay net to get my information & I'm glad to say it paid off! 

I used the twine I saved from the square hay bales & used it. It didn't take but a few moments once I got started. It saved me $14.99 & works just as well as one from the store. It holds roughly a full flake of hay & the holes are small so Cookie won't be able to breeze through it. 

I filled it up & set it aside so I could put hay in her manger & she was already using it. It was funny to watch her pick it up & flip her head trying to get the hay out. She's quite persistent! I can't wait to make a few more for her. This way I can hang them in various places around her paddock which will encourage her to move around & it will keep the hay off the ground. 

So if you have some spare time & bailing twine, you can make your own hay net :)

    I'm all for doing things yourself to save a few bucks and save the environment as well - it uses much less energy to make a net yourself than manufactured! Voted! stop by my new post, Equine Naturopathic Care, and vote if you like it!
