DO NOT USE HAYNETS WITH ALPACA says Kensmyth Alpaca, Clay Meadow

PLEASE NOTE this photograph was taken off facebook, apologies to sender I could not find to acknowlege and THIS IS NOT ONE OF OURS.

However, it serves as a very poignant reminder to those starting out in alpaca farming why you DO NOT USE HAYNETS with alpaca. This one clearly nearly hung itself but equably when empty they drop down to lower levels and likewise feet can get caught up in them.


Word to the wise on foals – high haynets over haybars can work but foals can also get teeth caught in them when playing and haynets used in stables likewise can drop catching little legs.

If in doubt – put it on the floor or create your own box for the hay
