    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!

    Are you haying them individually or in a group?

    Mine eat out of a large community manger together and you'd be surprised how just a wee bit of peer pressure seems to sweeten just about any hay...
