Has anybun tried...

Post by Thumper2001 on Sun Jul 07, 2013 12:19 am

Alfalfa king oat, wheat and barley hay? How did it go down?

This Timothy hay palaver is getting boring Sleep so was thinking about ordering the above from The Hay Experts.

Thanks Wave

It is like Thumper has left notes on how to be difficult about hay for Mollie and Junior!

The wheat oat etc hay is fine. But it is very expensive as a single hay. Can you not get them to eat any other bulk hay?

Pets at Home are having trouble with the supplier of the Timothy hay as we asked them, I think it comes from America. Smile

Laughing

They will eat Ings hay until the cows come home but as its really thin I'm concerned its not going to wear teeth down as well as the tougher AK Timothy. (They usually get both.)

They will eat burns green oat but it works out even more expensive than the AK ones Shocked

They used to eat hay for pets Timothy and Rye but they won't touch it now for some reason.

Dear pets at home, SORT IT OUT!!!

Our buns love it to and it's a lot cheaper for us to buy than the box we were buying from Hay Experts and now we can't get it either Laughing

Are they good to buy from the dust free hay company? I was looking at the combo packs to maybe try Dougal out at some point but do not know how good they are. He loves his western oxbow, shame they do not do samples as he can be icky with other hays too. He also loves oat hay, I like the look of the hays on the site.

I use them, Hector has that stalky meadow hay and he loves it, it comes compressed in two cardboard boxes, but when you take it out it expands loads!

Thumper, if you go onto the online shop, click on two packs, then you can pick what hay you want in each box (you can pick two different hays if you want) then click cardboard for the packaging and add to basket then you're done, you just need to checkout! I will take a pic of my hay box, it holds one cardboard box worth of hay.

which is the best quality though? Hay for pets or dust free? which looks more green and smells the best? as if it is just the same then there is no point me getting any at some point as I am going tobe buying a kilo here and there from Sparkys Humum as he does not always go for it or eat a lot of it. He is an oxbow Timothy baby.

Will the Timothy from dust free not be good for their teeth as we get Dougal oxbow Timothy which is nice and green(he tends to only go for green, spoilt bun he is)  and stalky and he loves nomming that and vet said he has good teeth. We get the oxbow bags of hay 4.5 kilo form petsupermarket online.

http://www.pet-supermarket.co.uk/Products/CA3623/oxbow-western-timothy-hay

Also what is the french hay stalky or soft or a mix?

 ahh you would be fine then as there should be little wastage.

From what i remember french hay is a softer hay, but we havent had it for a while.
