In an effort to help feed hungry horse mouths across the country, the Chronicle has given the go-ahead to relax the advertising rules a bit in the Hay Forum ONLY.
Use this thread to post a FREE notice of hay you have available for sale. Please keep the wheeling and dealing specifics behind the scenes, so the thread doesn't get cluttered.
Make your post easy to read -- clearly post your (or the hay's ) location, amount available, type, etc. If you sell out, come on back to delete your post or edit it to reflect that it's no longer available.
We'll tweak the rules/concept if necessary if there are any problems and feel free to contact us with suggestions.
Anyone have hay that is soft - soft enough for an aged (but healthy) horse that has chewing problems due to some molars issues? I'm running out of what I have now and my source has no more.
She quids (wads up) her hay and it falls out, but she CAN get by on really nice soft hay. She grew up on Timothy-alfalfa mix, so there's ALSO the problem of her turning up her nose at hay that is less flavorful (i.e. bermuda). She's getting some dengie but I prefer also giving her some hay too so she has something to do when she's inside her stall.

ALFALFA (MI)-We bring our our own semi with loads of hay to the polo club in Sarasota, FL to feed our own horses and supply the club members. Due to the decrease in members at the club this winter, we are looking to get outside customers. Hay is northern MI hay, average 68-75 lbs, alfalfa. They have actually been weighed--these are not small little kick bales, they are big, heavy bales, tightly baled. One bale will feed about 12 horses a good sized lunch. Clean, green hay. You pickup/load. $15.50/bale. If you are interested purchasing, please PM me and tell me how many bales you would want. Hay will be coming until April/May. We can also get alf/grass and first cutting if you desire it. Please inquire.

Bought beautiful first and second cut hay from near Ludlow, Vermont, and had it shipped by a really nice trucker who helped unload. Call Kevin (the farmer) 802-773-6687 for pricing - costs will be influenced by how far you ship because the shipper bills by the hour. He didn't have a lot of second cut left but the first cut was nice, too.
need bermuda, fescue, or alfalfa mixed with these for allergenic mare
I need to find fescue, bermuda, or alfalfa mixed with these hays. I have a mare that i just found out is allergic to everything but these. I have 2 other horses that I have a nice supply of orchard grass for. I need about 20 bales and am willing to trade 20 bales of my nice orchard grass for. I live in Pennsylvania.

I bought a ton of really nice second cutting Eastern Oregon orchard grass hay on January 2nd. Now, I'm moving to a full care facility. It's beautiful hay without weeds, mold, dust, etc. I paid over $300 for a ton. The bales are about 120 lbs, so 17 to the ton. Plus shipping at $30. I have about 10 or so bales left, $17 each, cash and carry.
I have connected with a hay guy who regularly runs semi loads between growers in PA and the Richmond area; he also grows some down there himself, I think. He is a very reliable source of high quality hay; a friend has been using him for YEARS. I have only recently been able to store a reasonable enough quantity for it to be worthwhile to use him/vice versa. I meet him on the road with my trailer as his truck won't fit in my driveway. I have gotten 3 beautiful loads from him at between $7-8 per bale, bales I've weighed are 50+lbs.
I will be meeting him in Marshall VA in the next 1 to 1-1/2 weeks for another batch. If you are anywhere between PA and Richmond on 81 north of us or 95 below us, he will meet you or deliver to you.
He will run loads to FL--has started to establish contacts in Wellington; didn't get as far as the second feed store when a pvt barn bought his whole truckload--not sure what his prices are that far south b/c of the freight cost.
