does anyone know where i can get small holed, small haynets suitable for my lamanitic prone pony. the only ones i can seem to find have large holes (want something with 5-6cm holes) or they are the haylage nets which are too big generally.

Either put another haynet on top or use a haylage one. You dont have to fill it.

What holds a lot, holds a little grin

ha ha that is quite true, however i really want to replace the ones i've had with same. but i will bear that in mind!

no idea where you could get them but love Disaster's idea of 2 haynets together - I was going to suggest making the holes smaller with baler twine but 2 haylets is a much better idea!

If you need to replace then get haylage ones. I use these on my mare because she could devour 2 sections in 5 minutes otherwise.

Just found these on Robbies.

They say small holes, no rings which usually means its a haylgae net but it doesnt say and it doesnt say how big the holes are... [unhelpful]

Have you considered a hay bag? You can get them with a net section over the hole. My mare used to have one, it was brilliant! this shop has a fine mesh net and a hay bag with a grille.

Great, thanks for all those ideas. Will check out robbies and barnstormers (never come across either before) tonight!

lordy calamity, that's something i'd pushed to the far recesses of my mind, how many spare hours needed??

Not many! Takes about 10 minutes!
