Re: Coastal Blend and West Coast Hay

What size are your bales? Do you mean square bales or round bales at $20.25
because our round bales are $40.00 a bale and the square bales are only $7
50 a bale. Oh and what is a stick of alfalfa? We don't get grass in bales
here just hay and straw but we tend to have the same problems as you with
the feed situation and feeding what everyone else is feeding.

Whoa!! No wonder you folks out west are having so many problems with the

Well, I'm way out west as well. Just about everyone I know feeds a
grass - timothy, orchard or meadow. Some buy an alf/grass mix, and a
few stick only with alf - mostly because it's cheaper than grass.
(Grass is $20.25 a bale now). Feed stores stay busy selling lots of
specialty bagged feeds. When I boarded, there was the tendency to
feed whatever someone else was feeding by way of specialty feeds
because you wanted to always be feeding the best...not realizing it
might not be the best for your horse.

But our growing conditions seem to ensure a higher than desired ESC +
starch situation. Clouds in the summer? Rain? Cool days? Nope...
