    Hay KMS Hayloft Bluegrass hay

    So I determined that I'm allergic to at least some forms of Timothy Hay after a trip to immediate care last year (wheezing, hives, the whole bit). I then switched to Orchard Grass and the piggies (and I) have been loving that - I seemed to not be bothered by it so much; maybe a little but not a...

    Hay Are we just going through it "too fast"?

    I searched on this and read tons of posts on how long it takes pigs to go through hay. I *know* it's going to vary greatly, but still it seems like we went through it very fast. I placed my first order with Small Pet Select last month and got a 20lb box of hay - it's almost gone now! I have...
