What size are the holes?
What size are the nets,and how much(weight)can you fit into them?

For me the SMHN were a godsend,not because I am not here but as back/time savers. 
I use hockey nets.In the whole net(made into an envelop-looking net,by lacing the sides together with cord) I can stuff 3 bales (~ 35 pounds each) of hay(remove twine after bales are inserted).Into nets cut down to make stall nets( 1/2 the size) I can still fit a good amount of hay.Maybe 60 pounds?
The holes are 1" - 1 1/2".
This plan kept hay in front of as many as 9 horses.
I'm wondering if there is a way you can fine tune your set up to make life easier for you?
