    Also this website shows the differences between the cuts... https://www.rabbitholehay.com/collec...nt=34706962438 If you click on "see product video" then the second video is a hay comparison showing all 3 cuts.

    The 1st cut hay is stalky with seedheads. So I'm a bit confused as to how timothyhay have gotten soft hay from a first cut? Or am I missing something lol! Just want to get the best for my buns

    I think you'd need to contact The Timothyhay Co to find out for sure. However, what I think they have done this year is to have just one area of hay. From this they cut a small quantity (1st cut), which was softer and greener, because it hadn't matured. They then cut some more, which was still quite soft, but stalkier than the first lot. They are still selling this. Additionally, they now have some, which is more mature and much more stalky. They are selling this too.

    What this means is that reading up about the different qualitites of 1st and 2nd cut hay is not relevant here as the hay all started to grow at the same time.

    I hope you've understood this. It's not easy to put into words Come back to me if it's not clear.

    Ahhh that makes so much sense, that they have only cut a portion of their field, and really early! So it's all 1st cut hay, but some is REALLY early 1st cut hay?

    That's right, so the choice is the same hay , either quite stalky (cut earlier) or very stalky My rabbits liked both

    We got our stalky delivered today

    Not opened it yet but I'm sure the buns are gonna love it as our last batch was 2nd cut hay, so they got none of the yummy seedheads which Smudge especially seems to love!

    I never used to bother about what cut of hay I got, but now I'm wondering should we stock up on this stalky 1st cut before it runs out lol!

    I'm guessing this is now going to be their main crop of 2018 hay. They won't be cutting any more hay at this time of the year, so hopefully there will be enough to last until the first cut of 2019

    Our last batch we got in March was 2nd cut from last year, and you can definitely see the difference. Smudge is very happy with this new batch!!!





    Edit: Omg please ignore those TUFTS lol, she is getting brushed every day lately as she is shedding like crazy!!
