    Default Dover's Small Hole Hay Net

    Just throwing this out there, but does anyone have a "coupon" (aka magazine code) that has the small hole haynet listed for cheaper then $14.99?

    My MIL is wanting two of these to make a slow hay feeder and with Dover's upgrade in shipping, it may be a cheaper option then going elsewhere (for a change). Unless anyone knows of someplace else that carries a similar style haynet.

    Thanks!

    I have about eight of these:

    In the pony size for soaking hay for my IR mare. They have held up great, and I suspect they're the same as the ones at dover for much cheaper. Also, Cheshire Horse is my favorite tack store, and I love sending business their way!

    Free shipping $60 or more

    This haynet is sturdy, too!

    ETA-just noticed the small one is one indefinite backorder, but the large one is still available.

    Another vote for Chick's Saddlery. They are $8.00 each and last a long time. I have two from them and they're still going strong after a year.

    Agree with Trub...I buy mine at Chicks. $7.99 is their regular price and they're almost twice the capacity of everyone else's.

    This past spring they were on sale for $5...I bought 6 extras. It's even more convenient having a buttload of them, I can hang and stuff them all and then line them up in the feed room and grab them as I need them.

    Bonus: at Chicks they come in black, blue, purple, pink, green, light blue and red

    The Dovers are the BEST. Hands down. The blue ones are, for some reason, made of sterner stuff. I don't have the discount catalog handy, but I'll leave myself a note to check when I get home and respond to this thread for you.

    Oh, and Dover has two sizes too. Chicks, honestly, don't hold up half the time the Dover blue ones do.

    That is what I do too. So convenient.
    They are holding up great. I have some older Dover models and I do not find these from Chicks to be any less heavy duty or anything, only larger.

    Default small hole hay nets

    The best price I found was from Horse Health USA

    http://www.horsehealthusa.com/search_results.html

    I suggest buying more than just 2. I originally bought 4 from Miller's Harness (now Dover) and then ordered 2 more. This is my 3rd yr on them and I'm down to 5. My one horse tears holes in them so a couple are patched with lovely blue baling twine.

    Thanks SmartAlex.

    I think I'm going to try the Chicks ones though. They are cheap enough and should do the job.

    Thank you EVERYONE for your help and suggestions. Much appreciated!
