The Stubborn One...

14h, 8 year old, bay pony gelding. The FLO picked this horse up from an Indian Reservation and was told that he was wild. The FLO owner decided to hold him back for now, so he halter broke him. This guy is a little resistant to having the halter put on but once it is on, he walked calmly and obediently behind him.

Hi Kerry, we got our hay delivered from a guy, I think he's in North Bend. We've found numerous pockets of mould in some bales, it almost seems like they did not either dry it long enough, or did not fluff well enough before bailing. We smell each flake before feeding it to the horses. Lots of brown leaves mixed in, sometimes looks like dirt was scraped up? One of our horses will take 6 hours to eat his 1 flake, and then often will leave some. Most telling though is when the sheep leave a lot of hay and won't eat it. I've never had sheep pick through orchard grass hay before. I'd love for someone to look at it (taste it????) We can't do timothy because it's too course for the sheep to eat.

And, what is TEFF hay????

Hey Karen, I think this is the TEFF hay that Kerry might have access to:

Sounds good, I think!
