    Zoobec you have made me feel much better. I keep feeling mean about my baled hay especially with all these fancy hays you see on here but they do eat it enthusiastically

    I worked on a farm for years and the baled hay is something taken very seriously by farmers (their livestock rely on it!). Most of it is lovely and fresh, we had very strict guidelines about baling and storage that had to be followed to the letter. It shouldn't get a bad rap for being cheap! If I had a car I'd definitely be buying it for my buns.

    Glad to have been of service I only buy stuff that is sold for horses, and I always pull a bit out of the bale to sniff it, but it's always lovely

    Ive just recently started buying hay from this website www.hay-and-straw.co.uk after seeing recommendations on here.

    Their 'Ings' hay comes in large plastic bags, a 9.5kg bag is 18.00, which is significantly less than I was paying for Western Oxbow Timothy on Amazon. It seems like lovely quality and smells nice.

    I did run out last week by mistake and brought some Meadow Hay from Pets at Home. I wasn't impressed with it at all(I don't think the rabbits minded ) it was so dry and twiggy x

    Mine have standard baled hay too & when I have pennies I get timothy hay or oat hay or ings hay

    So for my guys, baled hay 5.00 a bale - it's only 4.00 but they make a loss so I give them a fiver

    Then I get from-
    www.timothyhay.co.uk
    http://www.hay-and-straw.co.uk/

    And use the more expensive stuff as on top of hay and put in flower pots and paper bags and toys

    There seems to be so many different brands and varietys. I got pets and home timothy hay to start with but they are 3/4 through the first bag of that now so just thought I would ask here as there is so much to choose from .
    I get timothy hay from timothyhay.co.uk , there are only two sizes to choose i get the smallest one (i think around 10kg?) but its so big! And only for around 20, lasts me ages.
