I've been madly trying to find hay in my area and repeatedly coming up blank. Either the provider is out or they don't deliver.
I'm down to four square bales for 3 horses. Meaning I need hay THIS WEEKEND.
* HALP PANICKING Y DIS ALWAYS HAPPEN.*
For one, I won't be here this weekend (YAY EVENTING) so I have to wrangle a trusty friend to assist.
For two, need delivered.
For three, can't break the bank. I work, but apparently not near enough.
There's square bale options but their cost is almost double what I found elsewhere.
Elsewhere being giant ass hay bales.
I didn't even know giant ass square bales existed, but this guy wants it gone. Selling 1000lb, 3x3x6 bales. There are flakes, approx 3x3 ft and 4 inches thick. For $55 ea. Delivers.
I tried imaging the size in comparison to reg small sq bales. Not working out.
I tried doing the math. I don't math well, but by my calculations it can make this last. A while. If I buy two.
CAN you feed this to horses?? How? How do you break the flakes up even smaller? Have ANY of you fed giant ass square bales? How long do they last? How do you store it? What ARE these magical creatures??
Please help. Need to make a decision by tomorrow am.
At some point I will be buying round bales, but that will hae to wait for next paycheck.
Just trying to decide if I should fet 50 square at $200 or two big ass bales for 110 and it last allllmost the same amount of time. Almost.
