Hope no one minds my first post being after some advise.
I have had horses (the same 2 ponies with an adition of my older big lad) for 11 years. I have always fed hay/haylage. Haylage when I lived in england is it was the best I could give my horses. Here in france you can not buy haylage (unless you go to an english farmer that charges you literally about $10 per horse per year to feed it, I simply can't/won't pay that when you have 3 ganets pluss goats that eat ten tons of the stuff).
I am planning to buy haylage in england and ship it to france (where I live now) until I get the land/tractur to do my own. As there has been no hay cut this year apart from hay that will be mouldy as it was baled wet, so useless I am being forsed into buying silage. I have researched on the net that it is safe for horses.
Has anyone fed it?
Does anyone know how long it has to stand nefore you can use it? I know hay its 8-12 weeks. I have no idea about silage.
Any ideas would be greatfully recieved as I am running out of last years hay and can't get hold of any more now
I have included some pictures of my 3, maddi is the top one, ginga (original name I know) then Ru
