    ROFL, so do I! Hardest thing in the world to convince yourself eating poison. I keep telling myself as long as I get rid of the "high fructose corn syrup", potatoes and grains pale in comparison to that toxic waste

    You can't help but wonder if mother nature wasn't playing a practical joke when she made us virtually the only creature to have an addiction to the things that are killing us?

    I just think far to many people don't look at there hay close enough and just waste money on useless supplements when all they need is a good hay. You'll get more out of paying an extra $.50 a bale then on a bucket of $50.00 supplements.

    Many of us can't have our hay tested me included. My hay guys does 10 properties, and there is no cheap testing around me. I am having my pasture tested and seeded and all this year BUT doing a round bale every week is not an option :)

    Ration balancers run about 50 cents a day on average, 50lb bags run about $25 a bag and will last 50 days for MOST horses.
