I was doing some hay math the other day.
Y’know, figuring out what we have left for hay to last until the pasture grows…
I figure with some extra supplementing with hay cubes and beet pulp (which they get anyways) we’ll be okay.
I *might* have a bale or two left over.
Plus, The Merry Mares got their 2nd large oat straw round bale.
This they get whole, so they can tear it apart, dig through it for grain bits to eat, chew the straw itself and then sleep in it.
It’s not just food, it’s entertainment.
And that comes in handy when you’ve got 3 very large bored toddlers.
Here’s what the bale looked like when Hubby gave it to them…
Don’t mind Ruby…she was just finishing a pee. And was rather proud of herself for whizzing in the bale first.
And then today…
They’ve destroyed the bale and built it into a nest.
That way they can lay in it and eat too.
Some people’s horses.
