I ended up buying him some different hay...hope she starts to eat it for you!
It isn't dusty or moldy, is it?
No it isnt dusty or moldy, I think it was cut a little late so it was over mature (hence the coursness) I looked into it to make sure that was clean, the other horses out there eat it like nothings wrong... im just kinnda getting sick of the BO husband complaining about her wasting it. The BO is still pretty sick and isnt allowed in the barn.
The BO had helped this guy bail the hay this summer and in exchange she got a few hundred bails of hay. The guy just delivers a truck load ever few weeks and this last load looked like he picked out the worst stuff... so they arent very happy about it. They are going to try to track down some better stuff but if people have storage for it they are holding on to it.
My dad has about 2 months worth of hay in his barn... one of the neighbors asked if he would cut some long grass so he did and bailed it. Im going up there for thanksgiving so I think im going to bring a truckload back with me just to cover for now. I just don't want my baby to starve (even though I know she wont)
