    Default Anyone tried Haybox's new soft Timothy?

    Need to buy some hay & can't decide whether to go for the old faithful regular stalky from timothyhay.co.uk or Hay Box's "new" soft? I'm thinking soft might by nice cos their homemade stuff is very stalky. Thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has tried it?

    Nah I haven't, mine won't touch haybox! Which is weird because they've never refused any hay before.. Do yours go mad for it? Everybun seems to love it I thought it smelt amazing too we ended up dumping a big box of it!

    That's a shame. I never dump hay - just use the stuff they don't like on top of the litter. Oh I did dump some Burgess stuff as was convinced it was what gave Mouse mites. I seem to remember they loved Haybox timothy, until I did the 15k order - then they went off it, then back on it. At that point I had boxes & boxes of hay all over the house though: I'm not going down that path again lol:

    We don't normally but I was convinced there was some wrong with it based on their reaction to it, so I wasn't chancing it otherwise I'd have offered it on here

    Very little. She mainly eats forage, generally fresh for the water content. This hay though she had a munch when she went in for a pee & then returned for more 2 mins later. I'd love her to eat more hay - it'd be my dream, esp as when Summers over fresh forage will be difficult. All paws crossed
