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 :)
