And I am still mad at my husband, he should've come down the hill in 4Wheel Low, that's what it there for! He said I was rushing him??? He was leaving for his convention at noon yesterday, so when am I supposed to get the bale? A week before? it would already be gone by the time I met him in Vancouver! Men! By the way, his horse (the loud colored paint) is the major hay inhaler.
I lay it on it's side and I cut the plastic wrap off and then I peel it. No pitchfork, I peel it around the side and toss it out. I get about a month with 5 horses. (One horse only has 7 teeth so he really chews it into a cud and spits it out).

SO... hay costs me about $50 per month...

Bang on the money. Was pretty much all gone the morning of the tenth day. Hog heaven is over for them, back to limited qualities. I didn't even want to take a pic of them standing around the remnants, they are blimps. If I were to ride one of them right now, I would have to install that beeper thing they have on large trucks if I backed them up.

I'm about to have to put my pony on a new work-out now that she's almost hive-free and rideable. She's been enjoying too much food, I'm pretty sure she could benefit from one of those truck beeper's herself... or maybe a spring board at the base of all her jumps to help her fat booty get over them LOL.
