Super impressed with timothyhay.co.uk

Post by Thumper2001 on Sun Feb 15, 2015 11:07 pm

I'm so glad I finally got round to following up on the recommendation from you guys Very Happy

I ordered it last Sunday evening and it was here by first thing Tuesday! And it's super stalky! So stalky in fact, that I can't even fold it and cram it into the hay wheel Laughing

Molly and Junior love it!!!

I want to buy a bigger bag. If I close it up properly with tie wraps, can I keep it in my shed?

I ordered some too. And three of my four are indulging them selves into it! 
Regards keeping it in the shed.....
I don't know. It is high air moisture? Better ask someone who knows rather than me guessing.

I can't help you with your question, but this company are fab, aren't they? Very Happy

I've been using them for several months now and have never had any troubles - and the buns love it too!

Out of interest, did you order the older cut? My bale wasn't that stalky (still lovely and green, with lots of yummy bits) and I ordered this year's cut.

Glad Molly and Junior are enjoying the hay. Smile I keep my hay in the shed, 1. because I buy bales of farm hay and 2. OH is allergic to hay/dust so it cannot be kept in the house.

I store the hay in wheelie buns, but I am sure the bag that the hay comes in will be fine. In fact any excess I have I leave in the bag until I can fit it into the wheelie bin.

I bought a wheelie bin from here I think http://www.wheelie-bins-direct2u.co.uk/ (there are other companies too). Bolton Council wouldn't let me buy an extra one from them Rolling Eyes The second smaller one I have was reduced at the local Homebase.

I have never had problems with hay going damp in the wheelie bins in the shed - although the sheds are insulated. The only time I have had a problem was when I bought a load of hay from the Dust Free Company. I left this in the cardboard boxes which it came in and it went mouldy. I stopped buying from them after that.

Thanks for this Smile Our council are funny ******* too Rolling Eyes

Our shed is only a few years old so it's not like it's rotting or anything. But it's not insulated Hmmm Maybe mum and dads garage would be a better option. I could just fill up a smaller bag for the house. Or the wheely bin option, of course!

Thanks also for mentioning the dust free company. I've been trying to remember their name for about a fortnight Laughing Laughing Laughing

Is it better value for money than HFP? I dont want to change, as she is lovely, and customer service has always been great. The buns also still eat the Ings hay, but wouldnt touch their Timothy and Rye!! Ive been using it for bedding. Rolling Eyes

The smaller bag, no. £15 for 3kg. But the next size up is 10kg for £22. Can't remember how that compares to HFP.

I didn't want to change either but Molly and Junior are simply not eating it. The Ings was really brown and they don't do brown hay Rolling Eyes And I'm now on teeth watch following Molly's dental Sad

They've never eaten their T&R and OH appears to be allergic to their meadow hay.

Im allergic to something, but my Keter storage box thing is full of various different bags and brands of hay. I went a bit OTT, but the bunnies seem to like the variety. ...I have no idea what it is that has set me off, but I sneeze for about half an hour after the buns have been "hayed". God help me when this garden is in full bloom! I think HFP do 9.5 for £16...so thats £7 for an extra 500g!!!

Yikes, you're right!

But comparing the quality of it to the Ings is like comparing night and day.

I will happily switch back to the Ings when it's nice and green again.

I totally get that it's not HFP's fault. Just the time of year Smile

Hope you get to the bottom of your allergy!

That's true. You could argue that it's only £2.20 per Kg, which is still expensive, but I've paid a lot more for stuff they won't touch!
