We always order enough hay to last till summer, because once the snow falls, no one is getting a truck back to the barn without heavy equipment. We are really lucky the snow is late this year.
When I ordered the hay in July, we had six horses and seven goats. I was trying to sell at least 3 of the horses and 3-4 of the goats, but I had no way of knowing if they would sell this year or not, so I ordered plenty.
We are now down to two horses and three goats. I have 9 ton of hay in my barn.
Hmmm...maybe I need to get another horse.
Shhh! Don't tell Stable Boy I said that!
