Each sized bag is determined by horse weight, as that is the best indicator of the size and amount of manure they excrete. The Service Mini is our smallest bag, with a half gallon capacity, while our Draft Horse sized bag is our largest with a 5-7 gallon capacity. If your horse is on the line between sizes, consider how often you can dump the bag as the smaller sized bag tend to look nicer under the tail. Please click on each item photo to see size and detailed descriptions of the bag and the attachment.
What is the difference between Mini and "Service" Mini?
"Service" is our smallest sized bag, typically used by horses under 100 pounds. If your horse is on the line between weight and size, consider how often they poop and how long the bag will be on them between dumps. Generally a smaller bag looks nicer under the tail than a larger bag.
How does the Bareback Attachment work?
The bareback attachment is a surcingle belly band that has velcro adjustments running down either side which connect to the bag. The attachment fits easily under therapy vests.
What is the difference between a "Commercial" Draft Horse and a Draft Horse Bag?
The Commercial bag is our latest design, exchanging the hard plastic buckles with stainless steel snaps for a stronger hold. The stainless steel snaps hold up longer in extreme heat and extreme cold. The commercial bag is 2 inches larger, increasing the capacity of manure the bags can hold between dumps.
Is an attachment required?
Our bags come complete with all the hardware needed to attach to horse under harness and pack saddle.
If you are leading your horse into a facility or at an event, or require use of a therapy tank, you will need a Bareback Attachment.
For riding on the beach or in the city, under saddle, a Riding Saddle Attachment is required.
Will the Bun Bag work for other animal species? (Goat, Sheep, Cow)
Our unique design relies on the horse's tail lifting to open the bag in order to catch the poop. If your animal tends to lift their tail prior to pooping, the bag can operate effectively.
Can the Bun Bag be used with an English Saddle?
As an English saddle does not have the typical D-Ring a western saddle does, we recommend attaching the Riding Saddle Attachment to the front D-Ring, by sliding the strap under the stirrup. If your animal is long or you are concerned about the length of straping, reach out to us via the Contact Us page and we can confirm measurements for you.
What colors do Bun Bags come in?
Bun Bag's default colors are black. We do have white bags with black strapping in the Saddle horse size. We can special order White bags with White straps in the Mini and Service Mini size if needed.

Problems & Solutions
What happens if a mare urinates in the bag?
Put a large adult-size disposable diaper in the bottom of the bag or a small shovelful of sawdust. And dump as soon as possible.
My docked-tail horse lifts the tail too high, pulling the bag away from the body and missing the bag altogether.
Put two round, pool-ball-sized rocks in the bag to equal the weight of one dump.
My horse lifts the tail to one side or the other, pulling the bag out of alignment, and the manure misses the bag.
Tighten the anti-swing strap on the opposite side of pull to hold the bag on center.
TIP: Adding 2 drops of Ivory Liquid to the wash water makes the bag smell fresh.
