    Re: Which kind of hay?¿?

    Sweet Meadow Farms is in MA, I think. They offer a variety of hay but not bluegrass. I used them before I found a local source of timothy and orchard grass.

    I would put in more pigloos. You can take large mixing bowls, cut a door and invert them for an inexpensive pigloo. I paid under $1 for bowls. They work great.
