Who on here feeds round bales to their horses? I grew up knowing only small square bales for horses, stored inside. I have recently moved and my horse is here now too. She has a couple square bales left so we're looking for more hay. There are a ton of round cows around here and so far all we can find is round bales. A lot are too brown and nasty looking (sat outside uncovered forever) to feed to a horse. Anyway, everyone we know is trying to help find hay for us and it's all round bales. I don't know how to politely say that the quality is really important and I can't just call up anyone and order hay without seeing it and knowing how it was stored, etc. If I CAN find some nice, greenish looking bales, how do you feed round bales? It's been raining so much lately and I can just see all the hay getting moldy and being wasted... furthermore, about how long does one bale last for one horse? We don't have any equipment to move one of those with, so it would mean having another delivered every time the old one runs out. I'm trying to decide if it's worth it. Last option would be to just feed alfalfa cubes all winter like in Hawaii, if none of my winter grass pops up. But that's not ideal in my opinion if there's no pasture left. I know things should've been mapped out a little better before moving Crayon and all... We were just in a tough situation and needed to move her south before another Winter starts up north.
