You are recommended a net from the "4+" series.The 4+ nets have 4 layer of nets of two different mesh sizes distributed symmetrically. This gives 1 middle compartment that will be eaten through double nets or 3 compartments where the outer two will be eaten through 1 layer of net and the middle compartment will be eaten through 2 layers of different mesh size nets.
The "4+" series are made to be hang between two sturdy poles or closed with a "zipper string" and put in a box.
The 4+ has its nets in the following order: 3-3½-3½-3cm.
The 4++ has its nets in the following order: 3½-4-4-3½cm
The 4+++ has its nets in the following order: 3-4-4-3cm
All 4+ nets are protected by a pending patent.
Micro 4+, 90x60 cm = 36x24"
This is a tiny net that only takes just a little more than "no hay at all". It works when a horse needs a little hay while waiting and for feeding miniature horses.
Mini 4+, 90x90 cm = 36x36"
Takes up to 5 kg = 11 lbs but is not realy recommended for daily use since the small opening makes it time consuming to fill. Saving 5 minutes each day equals a full working week per year.
Small 4+, 120x90 cm = 48x36"
Takes 5-12 kg = 11-26 lbs.
5kg takes 30 seconds to fill, 12kg takes 5 minutes (it does take 20kg but that takes half an hour).
This is by far the most common size.
Medium 4+, 154x105 cm = 62x42"
Takes 12-20 kg = 26-44 lbs.
This is a personal favorite and recommended for full size horses.
Easy to fill and possible to move even when full.
Large 4+, 180x105 cm = 72x42"
This size is made to fit American 120lbs bales (50kg).
It needs to be permanently mounted and does best with support also in the middle when filled to capacity.
All the above sizes come with hanging ropes in the upper corners and closing strings to keep the opening shut. All flat nets can be completed with "zipper strings" that closes the opening completely in a very time efficient and easy way. Click on the picture for larger views.
