I started using it for my horse about a month ago. I give him a flake each night with his coastal. We're trying to put weight on him and the owner of the ranch where I board recommended it. He loves it and eats it right up.

When you first open it, you need to leave it be for a day or so. This is supposed to allow it to expand some and make it easier to remove the flakes. Works pretty well for me.

Amigoboy - What you describe sounds more like the small bales of haylage they sell in the UK
I bought some of the Standlee stuff to try and didn't like it at all because it was so dusty. I had to really damp it down it and then it was too mushy. They ate it OK - but I think this lot would eat shredded cardboard if I mixed it in with their feed.
