Hay Diaries

This blog has been a fantastic way for me to chronicle farm life at work and at play, but as with so many other things, I have let things slip as of late. Case in point: Hay Diaries. Believe it or not, this blog has been a good way for us to look back and see what load lasted how long, etc. But, I have been too busy to keep track this way.

Tuesday, June 15, we got four good sized round bales, two of which went out into the paddocks that evening. Last night (Sunday, June 20), we replaced them with the other two. That is five full days to four horses, each bale. Meanwhile, we put up 160 square bales this weekend at $5/bale. Expensive, but good quality, large bales. Not sure on the price of the round bales - still waiting on the bill to come. Even if they are as much as $60/bale, it averages out to about $3/horse per day.
