Findly we have enough hay to make it til’ the next season. Early June we put up enough for two horses. Since we added the other horse, we had to get some more. We picked up another forty bales last weekend from Tractor Supply. I think the number is around 150 bales total, plus two round bales so far. We may pick up 3 or 4 more to set out this winter. Since the winters in Texas aren’t that harsh, we may get by without them.
I’ve been checking out local resources and hay has nearly doubled in some cases since we intially picked up our first batch. We payed $6 a bale for Tifton 85 in June. Last weekend, we payed $8.25 a bale. This weekend it’s almost doubled. I don’t know what some folks are going to do about feeding there animals. Ron had a gut feeling it may be a bad year, so he didn’t waste any time putting up enough to feed our livestock.
