Are the crazy hay prices because you are in southern California? I'm in Indiana and it isn't anywhere near that for hay!

Yep, all our hay is being sold overseas. A lot of places ran out, in fact.

That's nuts! Here if hay is $6 a bale that's high. Typically buying in bulk can get you $4.50-$5.50 a bale....

Luckily Ontario has loads. I know farmers who ship it to Fl (common) but ours goes over seas too. I know of some that goes to England and some that goes to Japan!!! Something about our soil, its supposed to be some of the best horse hay in the world (obviously if grown, cut, dried and baled right)

Thats crazy that they ship it vs selling it locally.

Val is very handsome! I love greys with dark manes and tails.

$20 a bale is terrifying! Is that just grass hay, or is it alfalfa? I've been trying to find alfalfa bales around here, and people keep telling me that if I do find it, I should expect to pay $20+ a bale. So far, it is impossible to find, but it certainly seems like it goes for a lot more than the nice timothy/alfalfa mix bales we normally see here.

Very pretty horses.

We had such a bad drought last year and wildfires in our area that hay went sky high. I heard they were trying to bring it in from elsewhere, but I know of people who were quoted $80-100+ for round bales.
