I had to drop a favorite supplier about a year and a half ago because she switched on me, so I know how it can be. The first truck load she brought me was wonderful, green,tender and sweet smelling stuff that Cinny just gobbled up and couldn't get enough of. The second batch wasn't quite as nice, but I figured it was a different cutting, no big deall, there wasn't really anything wrong with it, just wasn't AS nice. The 3rd truck load, Cinny wouldn't eat. It was almost half straw (yes, bright yellow straw), the goats wouldn't even it it! It also had sticks, and here and there bits of what looked like trash from the side of a road that had gone through a mulcher.
When I complained she yelled at me and said it wasn't HER fault my horse was "off his feed" and that the farmer she gets her hay from had the highest quality in the state, blah blah blah. She then called me a few not so nice names and hung up on me. Crazy Crazy. Proof that sometimes you have to open up a few sample bales before accepting the whole truckful and unloading it ha ha.
