    Bits of misinformation being passed on here. Propionic acid has been in use for YEARS. I can pretty much guarantee anybody that buys hay baled in the many humid areas of the county has been feeding...

    Makes sense.

    I assume you horse is stalled on shavings. IMO one of a number of draw backs to bedding on shavings instead of straw is they have nothing to nibble on when their hay runs out. Our...

    Curious, given that you are located in the NE where quality hay is grown and should be plentiful. Especially this time of year. Why would you feed “bagged hay” at $15 a bale?
