    did you get first or 2nd cut ryegrass? Mouse needs to put on weight so it could be good for her but on the other hand I'm sick of chasing dreamy hay & did promise Bob I'd make sure we had enough food this month before I add to the hay tower. Dilemmas

    I don’t know it doesn’t say, although I’m sure they would tell you. I’ve taken photos of the nutritional blurb they sent for each hay and I’ll post them on here later between shifts if I get chance.

    The photos didn’t show up very well but it’s on the website anyway
    Meadow https://www.msandtjhaylage.com/_medi...cification.pdf
    Ryegrass https://www.msandtjhaylage.com/_medi...ication%20.pdf
    I got premium ryegrass which was as above but had a 9-10 digestible energy and 100 - 120 rfv.
    Timothy https://www.msandtjhaylage.com/_medi...cification.pdf

    I’m sure they would be happy to help. The gentlemen I spoke to was very helpful and asking about what animals I was going to feed the hay to. I told him about the goats and when I said I’d just lost a bunny and only got Fern now he said he was sorry to hear about that

    The meadow hay is the nicest smelling hay I’ve ever smelt. Fern is just finishing the Timothy hay now! I’m planning on buying 12kg packs of the Timothy and the rye, and some baled meadow hay for the goats.

    I am more than happy to send you some if you just want the ryegrass - and if you try it and she likes it then I would happily fill a box for you if you just cover the cost of postage and the precentage of hay by weight (which isn't going to be much really as I only pay about 5-6 for the bale!) if cost and storage of a huge bale are an issue.

    Does your supplier have all the options? Sadly mine only have ryegrass (sad for me and the ponies), they would order me a pallet of one of the others but not for a while as they would need to buy a wagonload.

    That is very kind I'd love to try Mousey on this stuff. Yes please, I'll take you up on the offer of a taster. Mouseys hay consumption has picked up a bit with her metacam increase but I still feel their is progress to be made? Do your bunnies want to try anything from the Trawden Warren?
