Colic. Ulcers. Wasted hay. These are just a few of the problems horse owners face. Texas Haynet and Tarter Farm and Ranch have teamed up to help prevent these problems.

Colic is the number one killer of horses. Ulcers are another common ailment with estimates from the AAEP suggesting that 60-90% of adult horses suffer from ulcers. Horses restricted to 2-3 meals per day are more likely to experience a gastric ulcer. There has to be a better way to feed.

Enter the safest, healthiest, most cost-effective feeding solution: a custom Texas Haynet designed specifically to fit the Tarter Equine Hay Basket. Texas Haynets help prevent colic and ulcers by simulating grazing and keeping forage in front of horses longer. The Tarter Equine Hay Basket keeps hay dry, off the ground, and allows horses to eat in their natural feeding position with their head down. Together, both products eliminate hay waste and clean up. 

President of Texas Haynet, Meridith Perry said “At Texas Haynet, our main objective is to help people take the best possible care of their horses. What we love about this product combination is that it allows owners to take control of hay waste and prevent serious health problems at the same time”.

Chief Marketing Officer of Tarter, Ann Tarter said “The focus of this partnership is animal health and saving our customers money on hay. We’re proud to partner with Texas Haynet.”


The Northwest Horse Source Publisher’s Review:

Texas Haynets are very well made and affordable.  I’ve used the Small (1.5″ openings) haynet for nearly two months now and it still looks brand new! The net is lightweight, yet very strong. I also put it in a hay steamer and it’s holding up to nearly 200 degrees temperature every day. The benefits of slow feeding are considerably. It keeps my horse busy for long periods of time which reduces insulin spikes, better digestion, keeps her busy and more. These are just a few of the benefits of these well-made Texas Haynets. They are by far the best value for the money.

I endorse Tarter feeders too. I’ve had mine for over eight years and use it with my Texas Haynet. The Tarter feeder is easy to clean and move around and stands up to our Northwest weather too! ~Karen Pickering
