My square bales are almost double...
My round bales are up $30 a roll...
Feed is $7.00 approximately more a bag...
Farrier just doubled in cost to me...

My hay guy is baling like crazy but he can no longer absorb anymore $ increase and is passing it on to his customers.
Fertilizer is now 3x what it was 14 months ago.
Seed is double...
Diesel, well we know that hurt ourselves, but he burns $300 per day per tractor baling...
He said he was speaking to other local hayman and some are in serious trouble and not sure they can hang on...so get ready for some very bumpy and expensive days to be in our future...
Keep this up and many of us may be having to face some nasty choices to make of what more can we cut to keep our horses... or forced to sell/re-home or worse.
Scary, just very scary.

Seems our hay prices have done a switch over from last year...
Where you paid last year, this year we are being hammered...and you get a reprieve.
Good for you. Enjoy the reprieve on your pocket...
