    Default trickle net

    Have just brought a trickle net and am waiting for it to be delivered. Hope my horse gets on with it and I have not wasted my money.

    But I cherish his memory and let him him live on.

    They are very sturdy and well made, however I do not think they are worth the money.

    Slowed my greedy pony down a little, she soon got the hang of it.

    think I will leave a small normal net to take the edge off then I am hoping he will have figured it out by the morning.

    Took our boy a day or two to suss it out, he positively scowled for the first 2 days!

    I wouldn't bother buying one - I just stick to my small hole hay rack Mine seem ok with it .

    Star figured hers out in about 3 minutes.

    It saves me a bale of hay a week, because the hay lasts longer.
    It also makes a bale of bedding last a day or so longer - less going in = less coming out!
    It is saving me roughly 22/month.
    She bites holes in normal nets and this net is still intact after 6 weeks.

    Star has been on box rest for the last 2 months and her weight is under control, she has not been stood without forage and I think that Tricklenets are well worth the money. In fact, it has now paid for itself.
    I'll be buying another.

    I have a trickle net for my greedy cob, the horses don't come in much but when they do it gives me piece of mind that she is eating slowly all night rather than standing for hours without food. If she has a normal net or hay on the floor she eats really quickly.

    that is exactly why I have brought one Katherine. If my horse does not get on with it I can always sell it I suppose.

    I think they are great and well worth the money.
