Saving Hay…or trying to…
I have just implemented yet another method to try to get the horses to eat the hay I pay for rather than stomp it, sleep in it or poop in it. Maybe I am too obsessed, other people don’t seem to be as concerned as I am.
At this blog writing though, I am unemployed so wasting hay is a sensitive topic. A round bale was delivered less than 3 weeks ago that they stomped into oblivion. You won’t convince me they ate even half of it.
With the delivery of the round bale today I have added a round bale slow feeder net. I am going to see if it makes a difference in waste and consumption time. On a recent trail ride to Tennessee the Hay Chicks were camped nearby. The campground owner used their brand of round bale slow feeder nets, and thus a discussion followed. This is my 220th attempt at saving hay, well maybe not really 220, but that blog is for another day.
I will report results when the next round bale is delivered. Stay tuned, to save hay or not to save hay, that is the question.
