The benefits of using Trickle Nets continue to amaze us. Saving you so much money on wasted forage and bedding, they also provide your horse with prolonged and controlled access to forage, bringing many physical and mental health benefits. Grazing keeps your horse happy, and with a Trickle Net, they can graze anywhere.
Each Trickle Net® has been hand stitched to provide you with the highest quality, most sturdy and robust feeding net available. The nets are made from very strong 4mm rot proof braided polyethylene in black. The hole size is 25mm, and the Trickle Net® Original is large enough to hold 8.5kgs of dry hay. It is straightforward to use and waterproof/rotproof so that it can be submerged for hay soaking.
These nets are super strong, heavy duty and made to do a very specific job. They can take a few weeks to 'soften up’, and using them regularly will break them in best.
Some horses can take a few days to get used to a Trickle Net. They can't grab and pull large amounts as they do with other nets. Your horse needs to nibble and pluck, the same method they use when grazing. We advise that you introduce any Trickle Net product besides the usual forage feeding method. Using a Trickle Net is a feeding change, and all feeding changes must be introduced gradually to your horse. Some horses can take up to 3 weeks to become comfortable with the technique required.
The vast majority of customers report Trickle Nets lasting for years without damage. So, we don't expect your Trickle Net to be damaged easily; we make them as tough as possible. However, if your horse does manage to damage the Trickle Net within 3 months of purchase, then contact us. We will help with a free repair kit.
We don't sell our nets with a repair kit, as we have faith in the quality and that they will last you and your horse years to come!
