Me too. I HATE peeling round bales but it's a lot cheaper. I get ALMOST a month out of mine. They are large bales though (not sure what they weigh). I had to go to a local dairy farm for one a couple weeks ago because my farmer wasn't home and it was much smaller, lasted about 2 and a half weeks.
I have 5 horses and I peel it twice a day (AM and PM). One of my horses can't eat hay, he just chews it so I am really only feeding four with it and get about a month.
