The Great White North, where we get taxed out the wazoo
Any chance the hay dealer would exchange it? Ihad this once when 2 of mine, who eat like Hoovers, turned their noses up at decent green 1st cut grass hay. I couldn't smell or see anything. Aftet trying a bale or two I called him and said to bring it back. Got me replacement numbers stored in a different part of his barn and from a different part of his fields.
Long story short- we were back in business.
WE grow out own orchard grass/timothy mix hay. I always fill my barn with first crop. Never had a horse turn it down. When we bale second crop I always think I should keep it- so soft and leafy and grogeous. Problem is- my horses prefer the first crop! Stemmier, different texture but that's what they want. I sell the second crop and no one has ever complained. Our local university said the best hay for horses was first crop grass type. Accidentally been doing something right!
