What is the net for? To make the animals eat more slowly?

The net has 2 inch square openings that the horse can get their teeth against the hay and pullout a small bite.

Without the net they grab a big byte, turn their head, start chewing, dropping hay on the ground.

So the net saves a lot of hay.

They are used to a hay bag for the horse trailer:

Unstuckable

This happened in June of 2013. Got motion impaired in a muddy low area next to a creek:

With the boom retracted, pushed the stump bucket all the way down:

Extended the boom while backing up:

It moved back about 5 feet:

Turned rear wheels away from the trees behind it:

Retracted and lowered the boom all the way, raising the front wheels and extended the boom again:
P6070034.JPG

Notice that it moved over away from the trees behind it.

Retracted boom and lowered it putting the stump bucket all the way down, then extended it again:

Raised the boom and backed up the hill next to the trees:

Removing a small cedar tree from the barb wire fence. Used tree limb loppers and a reciprocating saw to cut the the limbs on the east side:

Hooked the chain low on the trunk and pulled away from the T post.
Looking down at the limb cuts so the tree could be pulled leaving the barb wire intact:

Backed up:

Raised it and shook the dirt off of the roots:

Got the second round bale out for this fall season:
20211129_144518.jpg


Removed the net wrap and set the 5'x6' bale on the 4'x4' plastic pallet:

This time we put the hay net over the bale:

Then we put the horse style bale ring in place around it:

On 12-28-21 we got the third round bale out for this fall season:
PC280002.JPG


Slid the SSQA into the bale spear, not latched and lifted the bale:

Backed out of the old barn (still not latched) and took it to the horse barn:

My wife is cutting the net wrap prior to setting the 5'x6' bale on the 4'x4' plastic pallet:
PC280011.JPG


This time the bottom of the bale came apart:

PC280013.JPG


We were not able to get the hay net on this one, so we put the horse style bale ring in place on it:

The bale ring is not touching the ground, but the horses don't care!
