Types of Hay

I'm trying to find Hay companies located in Southern California that sell Ground up Timothy Hay or Chaff Timothy Hay. However, 1 company said they never heard of this. Is there such thing as ground up hay? I need this for some horses that have little or no teeth. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

If you find timothy hay be prepared to pay $18/bale or more.

I lived in Riverside County for five years. California can't grow timothy so they import it and that's why the average working man or woman can't afford to buy it.

I fed coastal bermuda shipped down from the Imperial Valley. I fed it to three horses for five years. I watered it down and nobody choked or colicked on it.

Your only chance of finding something in the "ground up hay" department would be to visit all your local feed stores, especially Tractor Supply.

Tractor Supplies East of the Mississippi carry bagged hay

Hope this helps

Or see if you can find hay pellets or cubes and soak them. I don't think I would feed them dry (although some do) but soaked they would effectively be chopped up hay and easy to chew for toothless horses.

Lucerne Farms - Quality forage feeds, Seminole Feeds, Mainly Mulch.

I use the hi fiber all the time. I just noticed they now have the hi fiber without molasses, so I may ask Del's if they will order some for me to try.

We feed hay cubes to our older guys. Two quarts soaked for about 30 min. Keep adding water til they are nice and mushy. A friend of mine also feeds dengie hay. It's chopped, but not dried and pressed together. I also think it has a sweetener too which is nice cause a few of ours are picky about their cubes. We usually add in some senior to it so they will eat it all.
