That's a wonderful feeling isn't it! We have our hay reserved for this winter too. We get ours delivered a round bale at a time. (benefits of living on the boss's ranch 8) ) We put in for ours about a month ago and its a done deal.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Oh so jealous!!! We do round bales so I just always pray my hay guy has enough for the winter!! WE did squares one year because hay was so bad (paid 8.50 a square for 100 bales!!) We are still eating last years hay around here.

2.50 a bale?!!!! I am soooo jealous, my hay costs $27 a bale. Stocking up for winter is a major investment around here.

Anywho, glad you have hay...hooray!

Yup, square bales are all we have here. Welcome to life in the desert and having to pay for the gas prices to haul our hay in from another state. Yeah, it does make owning horses a little more pricey. Sheesh, if my hay were 2.50 a bale I could have a lot more horses! I think 3 is enough already though.

Man!!! On the low end my horses go through a square a day!! That'd be 810 dollars a month for me and really more since it's more like 1 1/2!!! Yikes!!! And I only have 4 horses!!!!!!!!!!

I think our bales may be bigger than your square bales. My horses don't eat that much in one day and they don't have pasture to supplement with. It comes out to around 300 a month in hay for 3 horses.
