I am lucky enough to still be grazing my girls, but that didnt mean I waited til the last second to buy hay. I did have to wait longer than I wanted as we were trying to close on our house and if it had fallen through I would have NO hay storage.. but not a week or so after closing I secured my first load of hay.
Yeah that sounds standard for a bad year here. We had a supplier who always had beautiful hay [just meadow but high quality can't-feed-it-to-ponies-or-QH type meadow hay] and in a bad year his was $100/round just after cutting/baling... went up through the year and we had to find a cheaper supplier, which wasn't such a bad thing because we had a pony, a QH and a very fat Standardbred at the time. But he's not cutting this year.

We are set for a shortage later in the season I think, wasn't a great growing season again this year but it wasn't dreadful either. I'm thinking I might reserve 20 rounds from whoever I get my hay from, only have the storage for one round at a time so most years we have a delivery every 2-3 weeks and pay on delivery.

In a really really good year there's more hay than the farmers can sell and if it's kept under cover you can usually get old-season hay for around half the price... but it's lost a lot of nutrients so is better for ponies and laminitic types. With my older gelding who is an average keeper, and possibly this rescue, I need really good hay, the sort of stuff you feed specifically to put weight on rather than "roughage hay" as I call it that's really only there to keep them from feeling hungry/getting ulcers/colicking.

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

Maybe this isn't dumb, maybe its me, but if he never trialled how do they know he's too slow? And 3 rides doesn't make a good second horse IMO.

tommy is a 7yo standardbred gelding he stands 15/15.3hands never raced or trialed. He has been ridden 3 times and was an absolute dream. Only selling as he was too slow for racing.
Would make a lovely second horse for a rider with some experiance as he is still green
