What Our Customers Are Saying
"For show travel and stress we used to start all of our show horses the day before heading out and every day of the show on a ulcer product for prevention of colic and stress. Now, they only travel and stall with the N.A.G. bags and have had amazing results. N.A.G. bags have kept my horses healthy by slowing down their hay consumption, less colic and ulcers, and also keeps them busy without boredom meaning less pawing and kicking walls. They are by far the most durable hay net I've ever used." - Kelly Hoerdt, 2012 Standardbred trainer of the year.
We have some very special show horses using our nets including Josh Lyons, Tim McQuay and Colleen McQuay.
Thank you note from Sweden:
"Hey Mandy, I have tried your net now for three weeks. It is very easy to use, soft for the horses and they always seem happy and satisfied. They used more the first week but now they have adapted and consumption is normal. The size of 1 inch has worked well, and the size of the net is not for sale in Sweden, I think the quality is very good. Thank you so much and I'll try to advertise your net to my friends."
- Kerstin Sundqvist, Sweden

We ordered the N.A.G. bags about a month ago and absolutely LOVE them. We board horses and have tried several different brands and sizes and yours are absolutely THE BEST!
- S. Bergum
Your bags have worked amazing on the coughing as this year's hay is VERY dusty. Before I got the NAG Bag, I was hand feeding and one horse in particular was coughing a lot. Since using the hay net, that has disappeared. I have another horse prone to roundness as she is a pig and boss hog, so this is keeping her
weight down. I notice that when they are away from the net, they just stand, content. You have an amazing product!
- A. Myram
These bags are great! They are virtually indestructible. :))) It's the only bag my big draft can't put a hole into. LOL!
- A. Mercedes
Thank you so very much! I received the package in the mail today. The hay bags arrived before my departure from the farm, which is incredibly helpful to the people who will be caring for my horses in my absence and a great relief to me knowing feeding will be much easier. This method of feeding horses has greatly improved their health.
- Tr. Bowles, WinStar Stables and Equine Rehabilitation
Thank you for the update on our order. We greatly appreciate your customer service, the ease of use of your website, and the personal touch in your company. We look forward to trying the N.A.G. Bags when they arrive!
Just got my NAG Bag and I can't believe what a hit it has been! It took them a day to figure it out, but now they wont leave it alone! We can't get them to come in at night, even in this deep freeze weather, and when we do drag them in for the night they literally run to the bag to eat! It's hilarious. It took a week for 4 horses and 3 mini ponies to eat a small soft core round bale and I think the one chubby mini has actually lost some weight already! I had ordered the half inch holes, and I was worried when I pulled it out and saw it for the first time, but it's working like a charm - and so easy to put on! Thanks so much. Such a great job constructing it. Best slow feed solution I've tried yet! ...and I have tried a bunch.
- S. Brown
Talk about great service - thank you - A. Robinson
Dear Mandy, I have been using a nag bag on medium bales for a herd of 5 horses. I love it!! They are so much happier and they weather storms so much easier. Thank you for doing all the background work to have a product that works so well. I thought I would have to tighten the net as they ate, but I don't, the holes stay nice and open. I am very grateful to be able to purchase something like this.
- H. Aas
I wanted to let you know how awesome the NAG Bags are! The horses are doing really well on them, I barely have any fence chewing anymore and most noticeable is their change in attitude. All the 'feed me now, I’m starving' behavior is completely gone as the NAG bags last them most of the day for the same amount of hay they were getting before. The part that amazes me the most is the two horses that did not get along will now share a NAG Bag. I’ve got to get a picture of that!! Thank you for your amazing product!
- K. Atherfold
This winter feeding horses was easy - 4 round bale hay nets set around our 40 acres worked wonders, horses traveled around to the bales and no wasted hay - super product!
- D. Howes
I recently bought 3 of your small bags at Can-Am in Orangeville, Ontario. Just wanted to let you know how much I like them. I had been using slow feeder nets but yours are so much more flexible, including the drawstring. My only regret is that I didn't buy the larger size. Next time! - H. Webber
Just want to let you know that we just ordered two more mini 1" hole hay nets - these are so wonderful! We have four mini donkeys and these nets are perfect for them - they have hay all day instead of finishing their hay in two hours!! When it's cold outside I want them eating for many hours and now we don't have to feed in the middle of the day! - Megg and Edward Hoffman in CT. USA
WOW! I just got my new nets – the color is great, top cords are amazing and they are so soft. You can really see and feel the difference in your slow feeders from the others that I have purchased – my horses thank you! I am now a NAG Bagger for life!
- K. Newburg, NY
I don't have to worry about rushing home any more - that's such a relief!
- C. Pollock
Thank you so much ! You were right! my horse now shows no more signs of colic and tender stomach since I started using the slow feeding hay nets.
- K. Reed
I love them! I can now ride in the mornings before work as my horses always have hay. Wonderful products and great advise - thank you.
- A. Handstead
We've had the large round bale NAG BAG for a year now and absolutely love it!
- K. Kinswater
I quickly realized how important the Nag Bag is going to be for my horses well being, both physically and emotionally. Nag Bags are the best thing since Morgan horses! My horse is finally not eating all the fences after 17 years. I now also know what cool people are behind the product. I will be talking you up to every horse person I know!!
- L. Conant
We are very happy with our feeder and have been showing it off to all our horsey friends. Thank you so much.
- Cara Huber
Hi Mandy, I just wanted to let you know the new bags are working fabulously ~ no holes anywhere!!!! Attaching the carabineer to the bolt at the bottom of the bag is working really well to keep the bags from swinging when hung and wrapping duct tape around the trees has reduced the friction. Thank-you so much for your kind responses to my problem ~ I'm a nag bagger for life!!! Take care and have a happy New Year!
- Belinda (Blaze, Victory, Serenity and Early all thank-you too)
Love them! It has been great, happy, healthy horses. They have no problems from eating from the net and the bale is nicely disappearing without the big mess and waste I am so use to cleaning up!

I just want to thank you and tell you how happy I am with your product and service. The round feeder bag arrived, it was easy to install on the bale, and my two horses have adapted well to the new feeding system. In fact I find my horses to be calmer and happier. They are definitely kept busy "grazing" from the bag. I have found the slow feeding system is significantly reducing respiratory problems I have with one of my horses. So not only are my horses calmer and happier, they are also healthier.
- L. Lexie
Just wanted to tell you that I love, love, love my nag bags. What a time saving gadget over the Christmas holidays especially! My horses are more relaxed because they never run out of food. As you said, they actually prefer to eat out of the bag even if there is loose hay in the tire. My son is also very happy because he will be feeding while we are on holidays. Much less work for him.
- Barbara Hart
You have a wonderful product and I am recommending your product and the slow feeding system to all my horse friends.
- Marie Neil
We use and sell the NAG Bags and really like them.
- Dr. L. Delaney DVM
Just wanted to send you a note thanking you so much for the new Nag Bags. I absolutely love the 2" bags for the broodmares and younger horses that need a little more hay. It is a lot easier for them to get at, but there is still NO WASTE!!! Which is wonderful. I will continue to use the 1 1/2" bag for the saddle horses and use the 2" bags for the broodmares and younger horses. Just wanted to let you know that they are working wonderful and I love them as always.
- Janice Saville, Bar S Quarter Horses and Kennels, Marwayne, AB
They sure do seem to love them. They always seem to embrace anything which is more natural to them. Yours are more natural being on the ground and easily moveable. It's more like natural grazing than our stationary wood slow feeders and the horses do prefer yours. Thanks for making such a good affordable product.
- S. Finley
Thank you for my recent order of nag bags for my horse. I have to tell you that my horse is a big draft and able to chew through anything. The cost of going through bags is ridiculous especially when your horse can go through one every two days. However I'm so pleased with this product. My horse has not been able to "break the code" of this bag and his bag is perfectly still intact with no sign of tears or rips in it. Thank you! This truly is a great product.
Thank you Mandy you were right my horses breathing issues are completely gone! Thank you so very much.
- L. Olando
It is doing everything it is designed to do. Slowing consumption, reducing waste while providing a safe and durable product.
- K. Gorden
I received the bags today. They look amazing – much stronger looking than the other companies and soft - great!!!! Thanks again!
Talk about fast service!! I just ordered those bags yesterday and received them today. I am so excited to get them out for my horses. Thanks for such an amazing product!!!
I love your bags!! They fit easily over a muck bucket so they are easy to load and I love the size of them! The netting is soft so the horses nibble at it without getting stuck with the sharpness of some of the other bags I've tried. I should have ordered more! Thanks again for your help and support.

I have a horse that has had an issue with heaves. I tried a number of things and nothing worked. I began to search earnestly for an answer and it was about this time that we went to the Canadian Supreme in Red Deer, AB where we had a booth. Across the aisle I met Mandy from N.A.G. Bags who showed me some photos of the bags in action and said that they had some customers who had success with feeding horses with heaves. I bought one thinking it would at least be worth a try. This is his 4th day with the bag. The first day he ate almost a whole small square bale of grass hay! He had been wanting to chew for a long time. Every day I have been putting him on a lunge line for 10 mins or so with no coughing, gurgling or nasal discharge. I’m so happy to have found N.A.G. Bags - it has been a real answer for 87 and I!

Hi, first off I have to tell you I love your NAG Bags! I bought a small one to start with, then purchased the Day Bag recently and they work great! Keeps my horses busy for the day and saves hay from being wasted on the ground. My horses had no problem adjusting to the new feeding method and actually will go to the NAG Bag over loose hay. Thanks so much for your product! - Delena Balske
Hi, just wanted to tell you how much I love the NAG Bags. I purchased three originally and just ordered two more. My waste has gone to almost zero whereas before they picked through the "good" alfalfa hay and left stems. They are not at all as fat as usual during the winter as the nag bags simulate natural grazing and they eat slower. I can also leave bags for them when I travel and not worry that the person who takes care of our horses while I'm gone is feeding them the appropriate amounts. They are also very durable. Love, love, love them, has reduced my amount of work when it comes to feeding them!!! - E. Novelli
These bags are WONDERFUL! - A. Ludesher
These bags are WONDERFUL! - A. Ludesher
It has taken me a while to snap a photo of our two horses eating from their NAG bag, but here you go. They love it and get so excited when they see me coming with the filled bags of hay. Such a joy to have both of them at our home. Thanks again for your great service! - M. Larsen
