Cool Just Wondering!

I was just wondering how much a bale of hay costs out in the MidWest. Over here in NC a bale cost roughly $3-5 dollars!

Goodness, around here, horse quality alfalfa will cost you about $180 a ton if you get it in small bales. It is a bit cheaper if you get it in large square bales or round bales. I buy big square bales that are 3x3x6 and weigh about 800 lbs for $50 apiece. I don't really know about grass hay prices, we rarely feed that.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Dang that is expensive. I seen where people were feeding alfalfa hay to them. Do you just put it out like you do a regular bale of hay. Or do you just give them a pinch?

For me, all our pasture horses get a bale set out that they have full access to all the time. They self regulate pretty well and alternate between eating the hay and grazing on the grass. Only my customer's horses really get their feed intake monitored by getting fed twice a day.
