What is The Hay Bonnet?

It’s a covered hay-feeder that can be used with or without a slow-feed net system.

How do I use The Hay Bonnet?

Tip The Hay Bonnet on its side, place your hay, and tip The Hay Bonnet back upright over your hay. That’s it! It’s as simple as that!

Can one person use The Hay Bonnet?

Absolutely! The Hay Bonnet is lightweight enough that a single person can tip it without any problems.

Is a tractor required to use The Hay Bonnet?

No. The Hay Bonnet can be tipped or moved by a single person, it is easily carried easily by 2 people.

Are there cost benefits to using The Hay Bonnet with a slow-feed net system for my horses?

Definitely! The cost benefits are evident in several ways.

First, and most obviously, is the savings in hay. Horses don’t waste hay when using The Hay Bonnet with the slow-feed net. Using a covered

feeder will save you 15-20% more hay than not using one. When a slow-feed net is added to the covered feeder customers typically report

30-50% savings. I personally saw the 50% hay savings! Imagine if you could feed half as much hay without your horses losing a single pound?

Second, The Hay Bonnet  saves you time and labor! Instead of going out to throw hay multiple times every day, you simply set a bale, flip The Hay Bonnet over it, and you’re done feeding for weeks! Spend a minute or less everyday to look at the net’s condition and to verify the hay level. How laborious is that? Time definitely has a cost, but only you can say how much your time is worth.

How many horses can eat at once from a single Hay Bonnet?

Eight. There are two feeding stations on each of the four sides.
