ONE PIECE SLOW FEEDER
Happy Grazers' nets cannot be found anywhere else in the US Market as they are made Exclusively for our feeder. Made out of a highly advanced form of knotless netting that delivers superior strength and performance over conventional netting, The patented process maximizes fiber attributes that eliminate knots. The braids are balanced with a 4 strand construction and filaments run continuously throughout the netting so strength is enhanced.
You should expect the nets to shrink during initial usage. Nets will shrink up to 50% of the original size and depending on your horse's feeding habits, this will take 3-6 months on average. Once shrunk, the nets will stay at that size for the life of the net.
