hay pellets/cubes

Does anyone know if there are grass or timothy hay cubes or pellets out there and who makes them/ how much are they?

Justin is on soaked alfalfa cubes, but he honestly does not need the protein...i'd like to give him a bit more forage, but he's getting as much alfalfa as I want him to right now...

Any input is greatly appreciated

I have seen small bags of timothy cubes for rabbits and the like, they are fairly pricey $3 and change for a 5lb bag - so they must sell them in larger quantity, I think Agway might - if you have Agway near you - what about your local feed store??

I know there is such thing as hay pellets. I've seen it in local stores, but don't remember the brand. Something like Mid Valley Milling Hay Pellets | We have your hay pellets! I believe.

We don't have an agway - we do have tractor supply, and i've already checked with them, and my local feedstores.

Kitten_val, that is exactly what I am looking for, but I need something more local to where I am - - in Georgia.

Thanks for looking

Hey there's a business opportunity for you (in case your looking LOL) Mid Valley sells all over the country, but they have no dealers in Georgia - you wanted to get into the feed business right

Lol, not a bad idea. Seems the only thing I can find is seminole's alfalfa/timothy mix cube...and it's $8.50 more a bag than the straight alfalfa cubes I am feeding right now!

Kickshaw, where in ga are you located I am there qute often and I have connections to hay and such...does he have to eat pellets? Or will he eat regular hay? I am in lagrange

He has to have either pellets or cubes (has coliced 8 times and is old and missing teeth...i don't want to give him another reason )

Since his colic surgery at athens, he's been on 10 lbs of cubes broken down into two feedings per day (with 2 gallons or more of water with each feeding), equine senior soup 3 times a day, a handful of fescue/rye hay twice a day and 2 hours of grass a day....most of his colics were caused by him not drinking enough, so I am afraid to switch him all the way over to not soaked regular hay. He won't eat regular hay if I soak it in a bucket :roll:

What kind of hay contacts do you have? We normally get a fescue/rye mix here at the barn, but I am able to purchase whatever I need...but as stated before, it's really only Boo who gets any hay, as justin just gets two handfuls. and we are near alpharetta/roswell

Actually, it's pretty far away - probably 2 or more hours with traffic. Thanks though!
