Due to hay around me, and finances, I am going with large bales this year. I have fed them in the past with no issues, however, I have one bale this year that will NOT break apart in flakes. So I have around 700 pounds of hay sitting in my hay room that I look at with hatred and loathing every time I feed, so twice a day. I will be getting a few more bales this weekend, but really would like to be able to feed this bale. So, any suggestions on how to break it up, or at least get it out in semi-reasonable sized pieces? It is grass hay, in case that helps. I few large bales for years, then went back to small bales for the last three years, really missing those right now. Thank you in advance!
