Your favorite slow feeder hay net for field use?
My pastures are just about done. I've started giving hay loose on the ground but I hate seeing the waste. Also, the horses are chubby enough that they don't need free choice, so after they finish their hay they nibble at non-existant grass or stand around. I have Freedom Feeders for stall use and I've been reasonably happy with them. I have the small size which holds 2 flakes of hay (about 8-10 lb) and mainly use it for an obnoxious pony. After a year of yanking on it and trying to kill it, the only wear on the Freedom Feeder is that the ties used to tie it to the stall have broken...which are easy enough to replace.
I thought about getting the large size for field use but they're expensive so I was wondering about cheaper options?
I'm just not sure what else is out there besides the NibbleNet, which is more expensive then the Freedom Feeder.
