hay alternatives-anyone know?
I am sorry if this was already talked over. I am looking for suggestions on hay alternatives. I just found out my supplier will run out january. Hay crisis here in ontario.
I feed free choice rounds right now. In group setting. There is 11 horses. I am thinking about separating pastures in half and allowing so long on a bale than put in another pasture for a bit. However they are dry lots.
Does anybody know of a cost effective way to feed without hay. I have already put all my adds out for looking for hay. But prices are sky rocket at 100.00 a round. I go through 4 rounds a week. Right now paying 40.00 a round.
Individual feedings would be very difficult. I don't have a barn. Just run in sheds.
My hay supplier does have large bales of wheat straw. I read a bit, but still worried on how horse would do on it.
