How can you chop hay yourself?
I buy my old guy the chopped hay from tractor supply, but at $15/bag and rising practically every time I buy it, I'm wondering if there is a way I can just chop my current hay somehow, that way I can just feed the chopped hay to the 3 of them since my fat appy seems to favor the chopped hay and always finds a way to steal it the matter what I do. My old guy has very few, if any teeth left and chopped up is the only way he can eat hay at all.
Anyone got any ideas? My farrier was out yesterday and as a joke he said spread it out and run it over with the lawn mower, which actually might work, especially if we get a bag, I just worry about the hay getting contaminated by the mower. Anyone have any other ideas?
