Nancy, thanks for the info, thats an excellent site to pass on. Now, how to tactfully broach the subject with the grower....
Really goes to show how the 'looks' of a hay bale can be so deceptive. This stuff is so green, & so dry, it looks like the beautiful loads that come in from the western states later in the year -- the enormous bales weigh next to nothing and literally explode when cut apart into a gorgeous sweet-smelling cascade of hay heaven -- we joke that we want to roll around in it at the end of each day bc it most definitely smells better than we do...but i digress
Thx again! Just wish I paid as much attention to my own diet as I do to my horses'...
