DB, It's mostly my piggy mare I've seen eating them, so I figured it's just because she's a fatty and will eat anything so that's good to know! Although, I have no idea what trees are what, except the oak trees lol.
Good news! I think we may have found some hay for $70, which isn't great...but better that $90 anyways! I actually found some for $55, but it is some distance away and wouldn't make sense to go that far unless we were getting multiple rolls. We will in the future though so that will be great! As soon as DH's stipend starts paying out we will be in a much better position at least :)
