Hay Net Used Too Often and Hung Too High???
I have a small-hole hay net I use periodically.....but found out my boarding stable has started using it full-time when feeding my horse...and it is being hung high..above her head so that she has to stretch up to eat. She is fed all her meals this way. I know little about this kind of thing but doesn't seem natural to me.
I was told the hay nets are being used to slow down fast eaters, like my horse. Seems a few others have this set up too.
The BM won't allow the nets hung lower due to safety concerns. So..I'm thinking of just telling them to ditch the net and just let my horse eat fast off the ground like she has with no issues for the past ten years (excuse the sarcasm).
Thoughts? Should I be concerned or just let it go. I don't want to complain because it is a great barn otherwise.
