- Virginia is for Pasture Farmers!
April 9th & 11th, the two long sides got the straw rolls. Looks like I posted to FB and not here, or I missed it. So posting now to find it later to update.photodegradable netting.... report back to us.
Orchard, timothy, pasture grass & legu mix, as long as it's very soft, leafy, clean, they eat it. Anything else and they become high maintenance, prissy drama queens...Sounds like what you need/want for the sheep is a good 2nd cutting orchard grass hay...
I have ponies & minis on a hay only diet. They will eat anything. Yikes! I had to fence off moldy, rotting hay because the idiots were eating it...Stemmy, odd plants mixed in(safe ones) they eat happily. They're not prissy OTTBs, lol.- hay that we sell to horse customers.
This is a weird thing for me.get 1-2 rolls to the acre,
I've watched the field next door for years before we bought it. A ton of bales were removed per cutting. Same when we bought it and managed to get someone to make hay off it. But they always walked around claiming it wasn't worth it and not much would come off. Then someone else agrees and they get a lot off it. Lol, wtf.
They're always taking down my pony track. Redoing it with high tensile and then 2 hot wires. So they will bounce off soon!the heavy deer population here,
Thanks.Good luck finding the hay you want.
I had a great guy, but quality plummeted in the few years since I first bought from him!
I've always helped unload. It's the worst shyt. I hate it more than you can believe. Squares were created by a demon! Lol. Excellent to easily dish out, but total hell to stack and to pay for. All deliveries have had stacking included, but I always feel weird just standing there, so I help. Same with the feed store. I have to help toss it into the van...lolhad for over 20 years.... they sometimes help unload if
I'm in some hay maker groups on FB and OMG, some of them are so nasty towards horse owners! I've blocked several! Hating on your customers and mocking them is a no-no, I won't do business with such people. I can't control how picky my animals are. I've learned a lot about hay from them, too.
I always pay in cash for nearly everything that's not from a store. Once it's offloaded, cash is handed over." will call within a day or 2 of delivery and say how much and have a check in the mail, and we get it within a
I don't accept anything else for my sheep, too. Cash at pickup or go to the bank, no if, ands or buts.
