If you want at least a squeeze....you may want to try and contact Andre Musgrave who owns Musgrave Hay Sales. He is awesome. Great hay. Used to get his stuff at a Fresno Feed Store. My friend is a breeder in Paso Robles and he gets a truck load and loves it too.

That's too bad about the price of hay in Ca. It's interesting to gain perspective for us to realize what others have to deal with. Good luck with your hay season this summer no matter what you choose to do.

I will never complain anymore.....the 21$ bales are timothy/orchard and just now, after a year, I had caught a bottom bale with a little mold.

Its interesting to see the hay prices in this area and how they differ. For sure in my area you can buy a ton or a squeeze and get individuals discounted with the bundle. I think a few years ago we bought a half ton and it was around seven hundred....That was nice for the time, I didnt have to worry about trips to town for feed.
I now just buy for the month - Only feeding one horse.
I don't know how I did it before w/two horses, I use to buy weekly it was crazy.

We just picked up 25 bales alfalfa, 90lb bales, $12 each and 20 bales oat, 110 lb bales, $10 each. We prefer to pick it up, stack doesn't fit under the overhang, so it would have to be taken apart by hand anyway, and have it delivered, 16 miles, is $85........

Holy cow that's expensive hay!

On the ranch we just grow our own. Saves a lot of money.

Ride with us!

Thanks for all your insight everyone. My husband was offered a position in Fresno, but he decided to turn it down. He went there to get an idea of the locations he would be managing and while loved the opportunity he decided he absolutely hated the heat, and would rather wait for the same position to open up in Seattle.

I thought it was funny... It's not even summer. What a weenie, I warned him!!!
