Observations & Cautions

Observations, Cautions & Things to Keep in Mind with 
     Any Kind of Hay Nets & Other Slow Hay Feeding Products on the Market or DIY
Although we have never experienced an incident with our products, There are no slow feeders deemed 100% safe & indestructible. HayWeyer is not responsible for any accident or injury occurring from any of our products or advice. Use common sense & use our products at your own risk.
Consult with your vet and horse dentist before implementing a slow feed system to make sure it is safe & right for your horse.
Young horses and horses with missing or large spaced teeth can get teeth caught in nets or teeth pulled out. Ask your vet to inspect your horses teeth & mouth before attempting any slow feeding methodsIt can take a while for horses to adjust to slow feeding, make some of their usual way of eating available during the transition.
Bungee cords, sharp or rusty metal grates, regular carabiner clips, snap clips, easy open latches, and locking methods can cut, catch & rip lips & cause many injuries
Use hay nets with holes that are smaller than the animal’s hooves & properly installed. Inspect nets constantly and repair tears. Never use a net that has holes large enough for their hooves to get caught in, especially for mini’s, ponies, cattle, horses and goats.
Observe how horse use feeders. When horses are eating high up, sideways, upside down or other unnatural positions muscles in their neck can be strained and/or over develop.
Hang hay bags from only 1 point, Do not double tie, bolt or hang nets in a manner they can paw & get their legs or head stuck
Large hole nets & net drawstrings with slack can tangle their heads & legs. Do not use drawstrings unless bags are safely hanging from 1 point.
Do not use drawstrings in buckets or on the ground feeding methods . 
If hay drops from net make sure NO sand, shavings or dirt is there for them to ingest when eating the fallen hay nbiblets. Use clean mats under them
If your slow feeder is stationary make sure where they stand is clean and drains well or you could develop hoof, frog, thrush issues etc..
Some netting and metal grids can be hard on a horse’s mouth and gums resulting in cuts, sores etc…inspect your horses mouth and also ask your vet and dentist to have a look at your feeder and horses mouth.Horse dentists have seen metal grates wear down the incisors (front teeth)to the gums
Halters can be dangerous & get caught on many things like nets, feeders, fencing, tree’s etc.. Remove Halters 
Inspect nets & clean feeders regularly and make repairs or replacements 
Inspect barefoot hooves for jagged edges that could get caught on nets
Horses with shoes should NOT use nets/net type feeders that would at any time come in contact with their hooves.
