Alflafa hay... Seller needing opinions
Last Thursday we finished putting up our hay ( Alfalfa )...We stored it in the barn right away due to storms coming over the weekend..
We sold apx 90 bales to a couple who breed horses. They came and picked it up on Sunday.
Now, here's the tricky part...
The Buyers knew we had put it up quickly, first cutting, bad weather..
We told them to pick out bales and open them up to make sure it was good enough quality, which they did. The Buyers did comment that it was still a bit wet... but they said it was ok, loaded it on their trailor and took it home..
She emails us today and says her hay is molding, she is rather "rude" and complaing about her horses possibly getting sick, etc.etc.... we tell her we have not deposited her check and we will gladly take the hay back and give her the check back..
At this point in time, I advise her that horses should only be fed hay that has time to cure... and that it takes 5-6 weeks for it to completely dry-out.
She then goes on to tell me, returning it is a problem because she already gave 20 bales to her friend and they have already fed lots of it to their horses..
I went out and opened up about 5 bales of the same cutting and didn't find any mold...
Anyone ever have any similar experiences?
I have never done any buisness with this couple before and I am kinda wondering if their up to "No good"... ??
The story just sounds strange to me... does it to anyone else??
