Hay

Hopefully everyone is getting their hay in and it’s good quality. It’s been a perfect haying season in Eastern Ontario, but it’s so dry that it’s going to be tough for the rest of the crops. Some people test their hay, if they are concerned about weight issues and sugar content in their hay. It’s a great guideline for feed management. It’s difficult to find testing facilities, but generally, your local feed store can give some recommendations.

If you find that your horses aren’t consuming enough water, you can definitely soak your hay in your HaySmart haynet. It’s also a great way to reduce sugars in the hay!! Drain well and make sure that they clean it up promptly. Wet hay shouldn’t be left sitting in the haynet for hours.
