This years hay that is in my barn, is TERRIBLE!
It seems that every year,
the hay I get is worse and worse!
I do not feed alfalfa.
This hay came out of Touchet Washington.
It is full of weeds.
The pale bales are suppose to be sun bleached
but they are more weeds than anything.
And the green bales are on the moldy side.
(I got two ton of 'bleached' hay, and one ton of good green hay)
So feeding is wasting alot of hay.
This last bale of hay,
has the weeds that grow rampant in my pasture.
And I PAID for this crap!
The photo below is all weeds from the morning feed.
The only good part was:
Libby and Star did not eat the weeds,
and it did have some alfalfa in it.
The bale before this last one,
gave Star and Libby the scoots.
So I fed that to the neighbors cows.
A Whole Freekin Bale!
And when I did that,
BOY OH BOY!
Star charged the fence,
and Libby bucked and rared!
Neither one liked that the "neighbors" were eating their food!
(And of course I did not have my camera to photograph the incident.)
I now have a shadow when I feed.
Star was totally scared of my wheelbarrow when I would go out to feed.
So I let her get closer to it,
Then I let her eat from it.
Now she follows me around.
