Get Your Fall Hay!!
We received some hay for the fall and winter months. It's amazing how fast the grass goes brown even though it's been pretty warm. I still had a lot of hay left from the spring so when we had 100 bales arrive it was tough arranging it in our hay area. With two doors you can't stack the hay in as tightly so it's been a big of an issue.
We stack a lot of it under the tool shed overhang on pallets and wood beams.
Then several busted bales were stored in the tack room or in the shed and were fed first. I've gotten it so I can enter the feed room again but am working on the hay under the overhang first. Dani doesn't seem to know where to stand in order to pester me for food. First she was at the feed room, then realized okay...tack room area was the place. Now she had to hang at the gate and nicker while I load up the hay. Chance just stays by his stall like he normally does and wickers softly. Such a sweet boy.
Better to have too much hay to store than not enough! We got a good deal on this hay as well so very happy on the pocketbook!
