Version II Standard Hay Pillow® Bag
Our Version II slow feed bags make it easy and more economical to experiment with mesh sizes - or switch them out for different needs. Net panels are sold separately and offered in a variety of mesh sizes; 3/4”, 1”, 1 1/4” and 1 3/4". If you prefer to purchase a bag with the netting sewn in, purchase the Standard Hay Pillow®. Not appropriate for shod or horned livestock.
The 2" wide Velcro® stays attached for the vast majority (99%). If the panel has been detached - have a local tailor, horse blanket or saddle repair shop sew one seam around the panel while you wait. If you want to replace it in the future, only one seam will have to be taken out to install a new one!
If purchased for long term use, over time, the bag/velcro may become too distorted for new netting panels to fit properly. The level of distortion is relative to the acceleration of wear and tear.
These were created to economically enable customers to experiment with different mesh sizes without having to purchase additional bags. A Netting Panel is less expensive than a bag with the netting sewn in.

Please note: Due to the dangers involved in using any mesh material that can potentially get caught in a horseshoe, this product should not be used by shod livestock. We do not recommend use with horned animals or horses with blankets or halters that can potentially become snared in netting.
We do not recommend hanging or attaching the Standard Hay Pillow® while in use; the solid back prevents most from being able to manipulate the hay properly resulting in frustration. The bags are designed to be used loose on the ground.The tabs are intended to hang the bags on a hook to dry or for storage. If you prefer to anchor or attach a slow feed product, purchase the Hanging Hay Pillow (to hang) or Day or Bale Nets which can be used loose on the ground, attached at ground level (for barefoot individuals), hung or secured in a tub/trough (for shod and barefoot horses). For photos and instructions see our Mounting and Hanging page for further details.
Washing Instructions: Machine wash cold, gentle cycle, line dry. Mild detergent, no bleach or fabric softener.
Version II Hay Pillow Testimonials
My horse loves them as I have one hay pillow in his stall and one in his paddock so he can decide if he wants to eat inside or outside. Surprisingly, even when it’s cold and windy, he prefers to eat outdoors. He used to paw at the stall door and whinny when I got to the barn to feed, now he just looks up from his Hay Pillow and keeps eating. Bravo!" ~Kristin~
"My horse really enjoys the Version II Hay Pillow with the 1 3/4" mesh - he used to finish his morning hay by 10am, and now he's still busy at 2pm or 3pm. He also really seems to enjoy it - many times I've seen him leave a pile of loose hay and go over to work on the hay pillow.
The Hay Pillow is also great for keeping the hay clean and preventing the horses from spreading their hay all over the place." ~Jennifer~
