Thoughts of Hay

When your a rabbit slave, you have to keep on top of having quality hay for your monsters.

When the 4 new adoptees came home we had to rearrange our downstairs pantry
because we used to buy our hay products like this,
in nicely sized manageable bags that fit in one small closet....
 
 
But because the newest additions are such hay monsters (which is truly great)...
 
  
We now also have to invest in hay like this...
 
 
In 50 pound boxes!
50 pounds of Timothy hay, 50 pounds of Grass Hay
and 50 pounds of hay blocks which help keep little wall-munchers busy (some of the time!).
(We are trying to source out a local supplier but so far have had no luck...due to a hay shortage!)
 
But ya know, at the end of the day,  I'd rather have nothing else taking up space in my basement...
Okay, well except for maybe more bunnies!

Are there any horse riding stables near you? Horses best hay option is timothy hay also. Or if there is a farm & home store near you. You can get a bale of good quality hay for $10- US rather than pet store small bags - and I store in a rubbermaid container.

It is a lot of hay...but only does us for about 4 or 5 months. Natascha, indeed we are trying to buy locally but local suppliers are completely out right now due to a too hot summer last year! We'll keep looking, in the meantime OxBow is lovely hay:D
