Best Horse Feeding Supplies in 2020



Little Giant Farm & Ag 3-Gallon Rubber Feed Pans Review:


I purchased this so I could leave fresh water for the wild animals during spring, summer and fall. I leave it just inside the woods on my property... so my hose can still reach it. I especially like the flexibility which makes for a cushioned feel on the top edge. The only reason I don't give it a five star review is because I can't see when it is dirty. So I clean it frequently. Many animals and birds make good use of it. I even put a large flat rock in the middle so the birds will have something comfortable to perch on. I will be purchasing more to place around the property. Animals, especially in over populated areas need help with finding water. Years ago I witnessed two foxes looking for water in the dead of winter, and everything was frozen. The male fox kept jumping on top of the frozen water. I realized he was trying to bring any unfrozen water to the surface. His mate crouched next to the frozen water and cried while she watched her mate trying to get her some water. It broke my heart, so now I keep plenty of water for the animals, including the electric bowls for winter time that keep the water from freezing. This is a great product and I highly recommend it. Even the neighborhood cats stop by for a drink!



Weaver Leather Slow Feed Hay Net Review:


I’ve been using this net daily now for three months and it’s holding up extremely well with 2 horses and a donkey. I really like that the cord that cinches the bag closed is actually a white poly rope of some kind as I find it much easier to work with than the bags where the cinching cord is the same material and color as the bag. I definitely have less hay wastage and it has slowed down their eating. I even think my chubby girls may have dropped a few pounds in spite of the fact that they now have hay available to them 24/7. I would definitely recommend this hay net.



LITTLE GIANT 20 Quart Black Flat Plastic Bucket P20FBBLACK Review:


a sturdy bucket you can put in the sink to get the water. Load it fill and it's strong enough not to buckle and wiggle. The flat back is why it works so well hanging from the wall. It has a measuring system on the inside to determine exactly how much liquid is in it. A pad that could slide over the middle of the handle when you're carrying a big load would make this perfect. As it is, your hand suffers because the heavy gauge metal handle design needs heavy gauge gloves to be comfortable at all when carrying distances of any kind



Weaver Leather Slow Feed Hay Net Review:


We have 2 horses and use our hay bags extensively. Morning and night they are in use. In the past we have used Tough 1 brand, but found that they get holes in them so easily, and the cinch string at the top breaks almost immediately and has to be replaced by hay string, which interestingly enough, lasts way longer than what it comes with. The first Tough 1 brand ones we bought a few years ago were okay, but the newer ones just don't last. In contrast the Weaver leather hay bag is working out fantastic. It has a heavy rope cinch at the top, not the flimsy type Tough 1 uses. It I could give it 100 stars I would. I love, love, love it! Actually am buying another one to replace a Tough 1 that has a hole in it big enough for a flake to fall out! :) Yeah for Weaver leather. Making and selling a quality product. Thank you!



Kaytee Wafer Cut Hay Review:


I love this hay. I'm allergic so the way it's cut makes it easy for me to give to my rabbits quickly and easily. It doesn't seem too dusty. And it irritated much less than other hays.

Rabbits need a good amount of Timothy hay and Timothy pellets for optimal health. You should be giving your rabbits an endless supply of hay.

My rabbits love this hay so far. They are lion heads and they eat quite a bit! My picky bunny actually likes it. And she's super picky with hay.

I highly recommend this hay! If you have more than one rabbit you may want to buy a bigger bag. Rabbits are supposed to eat as much hay as the size they are everyday!!! This hay is a nice shade of green ad it looks fresh. It looks very consistent too.

Derby Originals 42” Superior Slow Feed Soft Mesh Poly Rope Hanging Hay Net with 2x2” Holes - Ultimate Comfort for Horse's Muzzle - Multiple Colors Review:


I love these hay nets. I bought 4 of them because they are soft but strong with the perfect size holes to not frustrate the horse, but still allow the horse to eat more slowly. My 24+ yr old horse loves these nets too. Before these, I had the nylon hay nets (same size holes) and he ate from them fine, but then I put up one of these next to the nylon and he went right for this net! Softer on his gums and more comfortable to eat out of. And they last really well and can hold a LOT of hay!



Mkono Hay Feeder Less Wasted Hay Rack Manger for Rabbit Guinea Pig Chinchilla Review:


It's all right, and as far as rabbits and guinea pigs are concerned I think it would be perfect. I may use it as a spare, but seeing as it's made of plastic and I have a chinchilla, I don't think I'll use it much because I don't want her chewing the plastic and getting herself in trouble (that's my bad for not thinking about the plastic issue when I bought this, though). The spring loaded clamp is also a little concerning when thinking about little critter fingers getting stuck under there if they pull a big bunch of hay out at once. It's not a super strong spring loaded, but I could see some delicate fingers getting potentially clamped.
I wound up finding a hay feeder that's ceramic, and perfect for all-the-time chinchilla use. But like I said, this would probably be great for guineas and rabbits.
ALSO, this does not work with critter nations. Or any cage with small 1/2 inch horizontal bar spacing. It's made to fit on vertical bars and the attachment doesn't rotate unless you wanna turn the entire hay rack sideways (which defeats the purpose of the small hay catching space at the bottom).



Shires Haynet 2" Mesh Holes 1024 Review:


I got a small and a larger one
The small one is pretty small and only holds about 1/2 a flake of hay. Which is fine for the trailer or to be tied to the trailer for a short period of time
The larger one holds quite a bit more-for longer feeds.
So far my (self) destructive 4 year old hasn't gotten tangled in it or destroyed it. She has just rubbed on it, pawed at it and eaten from it.
The holes are nice and small so that she can't get a foot through them
The rope to tie it is pretty slick and slippery. Hopefully as it gets more dirty, it will hold better.



ESSORT Hay Bale Storage Bag, Extra Large Tote Hay Bale Carry Bag, Foldable Portable Horse and Livestock Hay Bale Bags with Zipper Waterproof, Purple 45'' x 14'' x 23'' Review:


For the price I was not expecting this to be as sturdy and durable as this turned out to be. It is hard for me at my size to grab a bale of hay by its strings. This hay bag has made it much easier for me to tote a square bale out to the field for our horses. I have ordered a second one to store pine shavings in. Turns out that this is the perfect size to hold a 5.5 cu. ft. bag of shavings as well. With the zippered closure it keeps the shavings contained and keeps the mess down in my feed room.
