Bringing in Hay

It is that time of year. I am scrambling and hoping we don't run out of hay. We felt sure last year that we would have plenty, but that was before my mom's goats came to live with us. With so many more mouths to feed we will surely run out before mowing time. It seems no one is baling round bales around here these days, so I was forced to purchase a large square bale. That in itself is not so bad, but being that all of our larger feeders are made for round bales makes things a little more interesting! The boys improvised though and pushed the square one into the feeder. We then cut the strings and the large flakes that fell off were then put in smaller hay racks around the different barns. It worked fairly well and the animals were enjoying it immensely!
