Default What hay do you get?


I've had my chin for almost 2 years now and I've been getting his hay from the same store each time but now the store is closed and I haven't been able to find a good hay that I liked. Petsmart/ petco have bags of hay that are very small pieces of hay (seems like they're scraps of hay, not full pieces), the one I got from my previous store was much longer and easier for him to eat. Any recommendations on a good timothy hay that won't break bank?

A lot of people buy online, but I get mine from a farmer. If you have any horse barns in your area, then you might be able to find out where they get their hay. (Horses also eat grass hay.) I pay $10 for a bale that easily lasts me a year with one chin. The key is finding somewhere to store it.
