    TG, I'm dying laughing!!!

    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 :)

    EMStnwalker now is the time to buy hay in bulk. Where you live if you manage the pasture right in the future you may not have to feed hay except from late november to mid march.
    If the trees the horses are eating off have rather large thorns and are more like bushes with thin leaves those are mesquite trees. If they are round and have large thorns those are Bois D'Arc. The bois d arc will produce large apples the horses will love and the mesquite trees will produce beans the horses will eat.
    If the drought continues and it is in its 3 year hay prices will only go up.
    Then you get creative about feeding. Shalom

    DB - I think we should have a bathing/general primping party and do a full on photoshoot with your stallions for your Facebook page. Would be fun!

    Never mind that my horse is currently donning bird poop over his entire butt...

    Cynical after it cools down a bit we will most certainly have a photo party for the boys to get all dolled up and ready for the prom next spring. Shalom

    DB, thanks for the info. Our pasture is so weedy its ridiculous. I would love to find out how you guys handle pasture mgmt in this sort of climate. It's much different than the rainy TN.

    Nu, I really appreciate you getting that number for me! I called and got a vmail so we'll see what happens with it. Thanks again!!

    TG, yes I definitely want on the FB page! However, I must warn you guys I commonly post inappropriate and absurd things on my FB. LOL
