Dallas grasss grows normally here. Can nearly guarantee every horse and cow withing 100 miles of here eats it. I spoke with an ag person? At my extention office and he said dallas grass is only toxic in VERY high doses. My pasture is a big huge mix of dallas, tifton/tift 44, brome, rye, and fescue, timothy, orchard, and red top. Now I have oats growing, as well.

I'm thinking wherever my uncle gets his seed from, it's the mash of leftovers from spilled bags? Lol

Eh not worth the risk. I would buy other hay. If there's a chance it could kill my horse I won't do it, that's just silly.

I'm planning on using my cousins truck this weekend to go pick up 20 square bales of bermuda hay from TSC... and then mext weekend, will probably do the same, lol.

I'm going to make a hay feeder, so the horses don't waste half of it, too...

We feed bermuda and the horses do fine on it.
I also must live in the wrong part of the country since I'm paying $15 a bale for it.

There was meant to be another sentance to my post..... But, oh well. Lol. Glad you found some. You probably won't need a hay feeder for square bales. Just be sure not to put the hay on sandy/loose dirt ground, to reduce risk of sand in the gut.

Lol... I'd still rather have a feeder, that way I can put several bales out at once and not worry about them trashing everything and stomping on good hay that they could eat.

I'm thinking about putting the hay on the grassy part where I feed the horses...
