Warning: Please use extra caution when using with horned animals or horses with blankets or non-breakaway halters. Nets may be used with shod horses, but must be used with a traditional hay ring that is flush with the ground. When using the smaller nets with shod horses, make sure to hang it high enough so the horse cannot paw at it.

Get the net that started it all! Take control of your large round bales and get up to 94% of hay out of every bale with the Large Bale Cinch Net 6'! With less hay waste, you'll save both time and money. Our most popular net size, the Large Bale Cinch Net 6' will fit up to a 6' x 6' foot bale, as well as smaller bales such as 4' x 5' or 5' x 5' bales. Using a 6' net on these sized bales will not cause a safety issue or impede your animal's ability to eat from the net. This net will also fit large square bales: 4' x 4' x 8' and 3' x 3' x 9' in size.

Ideal for:
Use in the field, pasture, paddock or with a feeder.

The Original (1 3/4") opening size is good for horses that haven't used a slow feed net before. It's great for slowing down horses that eat fast, are generally healthy, but waste too much hay.

The SF/Slow Feed (1 1/4")
opening size is good for horses that doen't get enough exercise or are metabolic. Very easy keepers who have used slow feed nets before do well on this net level. Also works well as a pacifier for stall-bound horses.

The SFX/Slow Feed Extreme (1") opening size is good for use with miniature horses or horses with metabolic issues. Do not use this opening size if your horses have not used slow feed nets before as it can be very frustrating for your horse. You can start your horse on a larger opening size and transition them to the SFX.

The Original (1 3/4") HEAVY DUTY opening size is good for more aggressive eaters and a larger herd. Also good for horses that haven't used a slow feed net before. It's great for slowing down horses that eat fast, are generally healthy, but waste too much hay.

Great for Norwegian Fjords! July 2, 2015
Reviewer: DeeAnna from Postville, IA United States  
We have four large-bale nets with SFX (the smallest) mesh size for our herd of Norwegian Fjords. Fjords are prone to gain weight easily, and this small net size works really well. We usually have 2 bales out in winter, so everyone can eat in peace. I watch the elder and submissive horses and can separate them from the herd and feed them free choice hay if needed.

I like having 2 nets to use and 2 spares. We net 4 bales at a time, put 2 out for feeding, and have the other 2 ready to go. Our oldest nets are about 3 years old. I am impressed how well they are holding up. Yes, there is the occasional hole, but I would expect some damage over time, especially since our horses are hard on things like this.

A tip: Pull the net out of the horse feeding area just as soon as it is empty. This is real important if the temps are above freezing during the day and below freezing at night. If you don't, the horses will tramp the net into the dirt and the net will freeze hard to the ground.

6' 1 3/4" nets April 13, 2015
Reviewer: Dan Rodoni from Shepherd, MT United States  
We have been using these nets for several years for our horses.  We run between 22 to 27 head, and these nets save us around $420.00 a month in hay.  We absolutely love them.  We started with one, and are now using 6.  Our stud pens have one, our weanlings, broodmares, and riding horses.  These nets are the best thing we have found to slow down eating, and eliminate the horses wasting hay.  You will not be disappointed.

Great net but holes in SF too small June 9, 2014
Reviewer: Holly Chavis from Gilbert, SC United States  
I pondered which one of these nets I needed for about 3 days. I have 3 horses that are on a free choice round bale 24/7. 2 of them are VERY easy keepers and were at the time OVERWEIGHT, I needed them to lose some weight and then maintain a healthy weight. I ultimately decided that the SF net was the one for me since 2 out of 3 of my horses were Overweight. Well, everything has gone well, they have all lost the weight they needed to lose but are unfortunately continuing to lose weight! NOW 2 of them are UNDER wight! So I had to purchase a second net (the original), we will see if this one maintains their weight (after I get them back to where they need to be) So if you have horses that are overweight but are just easy keepers without other issues like metabolic disease, and they just need to slow down a little on the hay, the SF is TOO SLOW and hopefully the original will be better. I will post on the original in a few months after I have had time to evaluate it. THANKS.

6x6 round bale net 1 3/4 inch April 14, 2014
Reviewer: Rebecca Starling from Penrose, CO United States  
We bought our Cinch Chix  round bale net last summer. We have used other brands but found the netting was easy for horses to chew big holes in. Since getting a Cinch Chix net  we haven't had ANY holes. It is still in perfect condition. I love this product!!! Even bought 2 small bale nets that we use when we don't have time to put a big round out. This net has made it easy for us to go on vacation and not worry. Our pet sitter comes and checks stock tank and checks the horses for cuts etc. There is no waste and we use it with or without the feeder ring around it since our horses are bare foot. Great investment, saves time and money.
