Adding Days to the Food Supply

22 Jan

With the snow melt and warmer weather, we are adding days to my food supply.  Just the warmer weather lets me cut down on how many bales I feed each day.

Vanna, Buster, and Clover

If I keep feeding them the same amount, they don’t eat it, and it just becomes a soft bed.

Dolly and Lily (I know it’s not really a whole pile of hay, but they are awfully cute snuggled together.)

Then I did adjust the fencing/gates so they can go back out onto the front pasture.  They spent a good hour out there the first morning after I opened it.

Odie and Maybeline

They went out again Sunday morning despite the overnight drizzle and morning fog.

In addition to that, Fionn and his girls are eating the left over hay bale from Odie and Maybeline.

Harley (front) and Haley

Victoria and Reeva

If the pasture stays free of snow, I’ll be sitting pretty for hay!
