    Default Changing areas and hay

    We are moving our two poinies to Lexington KY next month and will have to transiton them to new hay. One of the ponies is IR and has foundered in the past so we dry lot them to control their feed. What should I be careful of when getting a bluegrass/fescue mix hay? I will transition them from their old hay (bermuda) for a week or so, but we will have limited bales we can bring with us.

    You're going to have a problem buying tested hay this time of year. The best I can suggest is Brumfield Hay and Grain, but hoo boy it's expensive. I don't know of any hay suppliers with tested hay.

    Here's the hay exchange listings. Maybe you can line up a delivery right after you move...you'll have to see if each individual supplier tests their hay and from glancing at it, it doesn't look local.
