Happy Monday

Crazy Casa K

What makes me happy?

"Hay Day"...

The day the year's hay gets delivered.

It was yesterday.






Oh yeah....a full barn is nice.

How do you have any clue how much hay to order?

A lot of it is trial and error, Renee... I can get a rough idea of how much hay to order by figuring how much each animal eats (Tucker one flakes 2xday, Murphy 3 flakes 2xday) but them I order extra because I feed them more when it's very cold so they can keep their heat up. When it's bitter cold I might feed them a few flakes three or four times a day, just to help them stay warm. I also have to adjust for how big each flakes is (their size depends on the baler) so long story short...I have finally figured out that for Murphy and Tucker, 7 tons for a year is just about right. :)
