Would something like this make the process quicker for loading hay nets? https://www.sstack.com/dura-tech-stablehand/p/22661/
I use hay nets in all of my stalls. I’ve gotten really good at filling them like I put on pillow cases - flip them inside out and push over the flakes I’m putting in them. I zip tie a carabiner on the tie loop, flip it over the top of my stall, and hook it back to itself. Safest way for me to hang them high enough but also break when my idiots inevitably get stuck in them (I have one mare in particular that thinks her hay net is the BEST. SCRATCHER. EVER. )
After a horrible, freak accident this winter with a blanket that wouldn’t break - I prioritize equipment that will break apart under pressure. I’d stay away from any straight nylon - if it can happen, it usually will happen. However, mine all need the nets - they pull flakes out of feeders and then pee on them, grind them into the shavings, and complain that I never feed them enough.
