    Hay prices in Cali have been through the roof for awhile. The old jumper barn I trained at went to Cali and Arizona for the winter jumper series. It was brutal because you were not allowed to take your own hay into the state but their hay prices gave you a stroke to even look at.

    Interesting. I live in New Hampshire, and most people grow their own hay since everyone has at least an extra acre to hay. But most farmers hay the centers of their corn fields and stuff around here so every farm has cheap 3 dollar hay, so our news paper ads tend to be only like 20+ hay for sale adds, its just a matter of quality, and checking it. Most is really good though, especially the wild grown hay.

    Its funny how different it is area to area. Where I am now(not to far from you) we can get nice second cut for $4.50 a bale delivered, first cut $3.75 - $4 a bale delivered. When you have to buy 300+ at a time it hurts but it could be much worse. We go through 20(ish) bales a day.

    It really depends on the type of weather during the year too. Here in Alberta, it was hot and we had rain almost daily this summer, and hay crops were plentiful, so it's pretty cheap right now. There have been drought years though (like what some areas of the US are facing) where the prices are through the roof.

    Hay prices have been rising steadily here in AZ for the past couple of years. Two years ago, I could feed my old gelding for $20 a week and that was buying one three-string (120#) bale of alfalfa and one three-string (125#) bale of Bermuda grass. Now, $20 will barely buy one halfway okay two-string (90#) bale of alfalfa, which is the cheapest.

    Oh wow, that's certainly a lot of bales a day! I have a mini and a pony, so we go through about 1 bale every three days. So we have at most ten bales at a time.

    I go through about 6 a day, which is why we started making our own after getting hit by a couple of drought years back in the day. Luckily we have storage for enough to get us through the winter most years with what we cut over the summer.

    LOL, Chiilaa, I am less concerned about the guy without a shirt than I am with the woman who looks like she's mining for dingleberries.

    Well that stinks I'm just south of NH in MA and my hay is $8.50 a bale! Not as bad as some people but it still stinks with my fat ponies! Slow feeders rock.
