Hello all!

There is a new brand of Timothy Hay on the Hay Experts site:

https://www.thehayexperts.com/product_info.php?cPath=4_21&products_id=268

My last batch of hay was really terrible, short and much more like cut grass (I won;t name where I got it from). Just wondering if anyone has tried this one? It's from a US company called Alfalfa King. It's just that bit more economical than Oxbow.

Ta! :D

Oh... they've only just listed it. I've only just got an order at the beginning of the month, I tend to stock up when I order from them so I won't be again for a while. You'll all have to let us know if it is good or popular.

I love the hay bag though (https://www.thehayexperts.com/product_info.php?products_id=269), I suggested to my mum that I made a drawstring calico bag for the rabbit's hay a couple of months back and she just laughed... well obviously it wan't a bad idea afterall!

I did buy a bag of the Oxbow Botanical Hay (https://www.thehayexperts.com/product_info.php?cPath=4_34&products_id=239) last time and it has proved quite popular!

If it's as nice as it looks in the picture, I'm sure Evo would find it yummy! I've started getting my Oxbow in boxes, the 4kg box isn't too big to store and lasts ages with just Evo eating it.

Where do you get the 4kg box from?

The Hay Experts sell several types of hay in bigger boxes. I bought a 4kg box of brome hay which lasted quite a while. I usually mix it with the meadow hay and some other "fancy" hays. Sometimes you can get timothy hay on ebay, but I am not sure how good the quality of it is.

Right, I am ordering the 400g packs of both Oxbow and Alfalfa King timothy hays, and then I will let you know which I, and most importantly, Bobbin prefer ;) :D

Also going to get him started on SS to see if he's poops go down :? I shall let you know the outcome of that little experiment too as know you're all just so interested in bunny poop! :p

My vets order it for me now. :) But in the past I've got it from the Hay Experts. It's not too big at all, which is lucky, because o/h keeps telling me off for having Evo's stuff all over the house. :lol:

i got this from hay experts yesterday for preston who is so fussy about what he will eat and i am pleased to say that he is wolfing it down! :D

glad i went for the big bag too (which is smaller than you'd expect cos it's so compacted)

it looks great, smells great and there is loads in the bag cos it's so compressed. i laughed to myself cos i thought it kind of looked like lasgne sheets cos its so uniformly cut and packed, but then that might just be me being mad thinking of food for myself as usual :p

i am so pleased ive found something else he will eat, sadly he does not think much of the oxbow stuff.

preston definitely gives this the paws up! :D

Mine are getting through hay at an astounding rate at the minute aswell. Luckily I had chance to pop to a nearby-ish farm the other day and got a bale for 2.50!!

We actually have a farm just around the corner, but I don't think they sell hay. Our guests are always surprised to see cows and green fields. They usually expect a more city-like landscape.
Janice gets her hay from a pet shop that stocks bales, maybe I should try that. Wish I had a barn to store it. :lol:

I have my hay and straw in the hallway, next to the shoes. Everyone who comes into our house comments on the hay smell. :oops:
