    from what my BO said every round bale she got, from a couple of place even, was wonderful on the outside and funky on the inside. NOT saying that in any form of defence as your BO needs a good talking to from what I have read, but I am saying it so you don't get the shaft and some funky musty hay...just what I've heard though...I'm a square bale kind of girl anyways...Good luck talking to her I hope you get it all worked out!
    I like the square bales anyways....sometimes I come in the morning to help feed the horses and I couldn't possibly put a round bale in Sonny's pasture I'd like kill myself trying to hehe
    Well I'm going to have a chat first with my mom mainly asking her if she'll be with me while I talk to the BO...and if she feels even nicer she can do the talking

    Yer if the round bales arent cured (?) properly they basicly grow mould. Lady I worked for once bought a thousand $$$ of mould onetime. Thanks god for cattle and their iron stomachs.

    Yeah rund bales are hard to move if you don't have acess to a trator but I do agree square bales are easier just ca be a pain sometimes haveing to constantly throwing it

    UPDATE:
    Well my mom talked to the BO while I was down getting Sonny and cleaning him off (I didn't know she was talking to her at the time....cause I did want to be there) and the BO said that she thought she was giving Sonny enough. She said she was giving him 3 flakes in the morning and before she left for piano lessons she'd go down quickly (supposedly) and check him and give him more hay if he finished all of what he had before.
    My mom said she seemed fine with us throwing in more hay for Sonny on the days we were there which is a good thing...
    She also suggested giving him some grain or something else besides hay to keep him full and happy. So I'm going to have the BO give him some grain, beet pulp, and rice bran...soak it for a while and then give it to him in the morning and in the night. And once he gets to a good weight I'll have her just do it in the morning.

    Here's a picture of him after all the hay he had in his stall and all the hay he had on Thursday....not as skinny


    So hopefully things will work out

    Good news


    Sonny had bunches of hay this morning...I came at 2 pm and he still had a HUGE ammount...so either the BO gave him alot of hay...or he pulled a bale in...but it didn't look like he pulled a bale in...but could be wrong....either way he had lots of hay today
