- Hi! I very rarely see if I have a PM, nice to meet you!
No problem getting feed here. The problem is affording it! Hay is about $40/bale. I give alfalfa cubes, less waste, and my area is low-calcium grass. Other areas have worse grass--kikuya, which leaches the calcium from bones. Some suspect it causes tumors, too. Yikes!
Rainy season is coming, an I'm guessing you're reading about thrush remedies, and rain-scald remedies, as I am.
Your horse has a lovely face!
