Simulate grazing and foraging and reduce the incidence of colic, choke, and stable vices. Great for laminitic or IR horses and ponies.
Large range of sizes - 3 x 4/4 x 4, 5 x 4 or 6 x 4 round bales (size in feet). All sizes are black in colour, despite colour in photos.
Reduce the incidence of colic, choke, stomach ulcers, boredom, hay wastage, stable vices but simulate grazing.
New design means they are larger and easier to put on and will fully encapsulate the bale if you want it to.
How do I decide what size will suit my horse or livestock?
3cm - Great for really Gutzy eaters. Ponies, laminitic horses or if your hay is REALLY palatable and you want to slow consumption even more. Recommended for horses and ponies that have tried slow feed hay nets before as some horses may be frustrated by this size, others accept it without hesitation. Despite no top teeth, we have customers whose cattle can still eat from this size net with palatable hay. Available in 48ply and 60ply.
4cm - Our most popular hole size. Great to slow down feeding and save on hay wastage plus many other health benefits. Available in 48ply and 60ply. Good general purpose hole size, 95% or horses have no trouble accepting this size net hole. Good size for cattle, sheep, goats, donkeys and alpacas too.
6cm - Great for brood mares, old horses or any horse, cow, sheep or goat that you aren't trying to restrict hay consumption with but still stop hay wastage. Please note to make sure the hoof size is greater than the hole size. A hay ring or physical barrier is recommended if this is a concern. Also great for less palatable hay, coarse or stalky hay. Also stops hay from being blown away. Available in 60ply.
Why use a GutzBusta for your horse or livestock?
Decreases wastage of a round bale amazingly and also allows round bale to last longer. Up to 40% less wastage when using a GutzBusta® Round Bale hay net. Easy to place net over round bale. I have found one round bale lasts our 3-4 horses 7-15 days (depending on how cold weather is).
Easier to put on than many competitors hay nets as we have been making these nets for nearly 7 years and know how the netting behaves over time. We therefore have developed a size and pattern that works to enable these nets to last and REMAIN easy to fit in years to come. Comes with a large drawstring to easily secure the hay net around your round bale.

All of our round bale hay nets are now able to fully encapsulate the round bales of hay as we have done a revamp of all product sizes. These nets are now more generous in sizing and super easy to put on the round bales. Tight nets on bales might look good initially, but to keep our products easy to use throughout their entire life, we recognized they needed to be a bit bigger, so they are all true to size. For example: if you only ever use 4x4 hay rolls, then you only need a 4x4 hay net.
Please note that the 6x4 is a 'one size fits all hay net' and will fit all sizes of round bales listed above. Obviously it will be big on a 4x4, but the excess netting can simply be rolled up along one edge of the net and tied off in a couple of sections using twine to take up the slack. We send instructions on how to do this.

As of August 2016, ALL sizes of our hay nets have had a revamp with a new draw string material used and more importantly, they have all had a size increase. Our hay nets are now the most generous sized hay nets in Australia. They all have wide mouths that make filling much easier. As we have been making them for over 6 years now, we know how they nets respond with 24/7 use and have made adjustments to make sure your hay nets remain easy to fill, and the best available on the market. Our Larges are unique to all other slow feed hay nets in Australia in ease of use and design.
Do not leave buckled halters or other type of buckled head gear on your horse when using ANY type of hay net as your horse may get caught. If your horse is shod then simply tie your net up a little higher or put your net inside a box or other device that stops their feet coming into contact with their hay net. Similarly, do not let horned animals such as cattle, sheep or goats eat from the hay nets as they may tear the netting or get entangled.
Cattle with ears tags are able to remove ear tags if caught on net so please evaulate if this is a problem for your own individual situation.
