Hay in Eastern WA

Hi there, I just moved to Eastern Washington (25 miles north of Spokane) from NC and I'm having a hard time finding a hay supplier. I have 2 horses at 1350lbs each that get 8lbs of grain a day. My mare is an easy keeper so I wanted to put her on 16lbs of Timothy hay a day and my gelding on 16lbs of alfalfa. This is the first time I have had my horses at my own house so I'm still getting used to their everyday care. Does anyone know of a place in Eastern WA that has small square bales of alfalfa and Timothy that will haul? Also, how many tons should I get of each? Thanks!

Have you looked on craigslist? There are always adds for hay there. You can also find local feed stores and go that way. Eastern WA grows tons on hay, so you should have no problem locating what you need.

Let me talk with my husband's uncle. He is in the same general area and may have a supplier who can help you.

Lucky you!

Check on Craigslist! You're in the best place in the state for hay. :)

Yep. Little Spokane River, no motorized vehicle area, just south of Horseshoe Lake.

Oh wow, that's wild country, right on the edge of wolf territory.
