Boy I can relate to worry. I set aside several hundred dollars and went to buy hay about a month ago at $6 a bale, being new to buying hay I wasn't really sure what to look for but the fellow selling it seemed nice so we paid and hauled away a flatbed trailer full.
A week later found out it was mostly straw, and has mold running all through it.
I could have cried. Been trying to buy up what I can now, but the prices have gone way up and I don't have as much cash laying around right now.
Sometimes ya learn the heard way. How's that saying go? "Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, and the lesson afterwards."
