Under what circumstances would you buy round bales of hay for your horses that have been stored outside? I know in a perfect world, they should be stored inside, but that is not always possible. So does the manner in which they store them matter? Stacked vs in rows? Is one better than the other? How about wrapping? Does net wrapping preserve more of the hay? Does net wrapping have to be removed before feeding ? What is the oldest hay that you would consider? Only hay from the current year or last year? How long could a round bale stay good being stored outside in the elements?
