    Could you ask them to send you a sample first? I know that means waiting, but at least you can assure yourself of what it's like.

    I think you've said before that your OH has had allergy-type problems with this hay. If so, have you found that individual batches vary? I'm really suffering quite a lot with ezcema at the moment and the change in hay is the only thing I can identify that's different in my environment. I'm loathe to stop buying this hay as the rabbits really love it, but equally I don't understand why or if this is really the cause of my current problems.

    Brilliant idea, though as the batch is cheaper I decided to go for it! If it's not all great it'll be used as bedding or if dusty then I'll chuck it up the stables... Will make sure to tell you all how the hay is if that helps

    I actually decided to give timothyhay.co.uk a whirl and ordered some earlier this week. I must have got the last of the "good" batch as it was full price. Anyhoo, it arrived today and the buns really love it!

    I postponed ordering and as soon as I went to order I saw the sign telling me the better stuff had gone! Felt like a plum

    Yes I think I was on the tail end of the good stuff too. Very lucky, as I had no idea that their other stuff was different.

    I have never seen hay that is less dusty than this - it's just brilliant

    I know, it's very lush! Snoopy's actually been preferring it over readigrass this evening. I never thought I'd see that!

    It's always annoying when things like that happen. Hopefully this batch won't be too different. I'm sure your buns will leave you in doubt as to their view on the matter

    I think that the last 2 bags that we got weren't so bad but to be honest he is off hay/litter tray duty. It made him too poorly and it wasn't worth the risk. His whole throat would close up to the point that he couldn't breathe and he would get little white spots all over his hands and arms. He would also be wheezy for a few hours after. If he does do it he wears long sleeve tops, gloves AND a face mask! This is a recent thing though, we've been having this hay for over 2 years now and for the first 20 months it didn't cause him any problems at all!
