Welcome to the forum Coltsfoot.

We have similar (chickens, sheep, orchard, dogs, cat, pond etc) in mid-Wales which keeps us very busy

I've got round bales. Its nice for horses as its almost as dry as hay. my customers love it but i've got a few to spare this year after the good crop.

What a nice welcome  :excited:
We only use hay as one horse has cushings...but will keep it in mind and thankyou.
We go to Scotland in August to Blair Horse Trials and have to say its the best event we do and the people are fantastic!

Hello from the very Northern part of Derbyshire (Cheshire border yards away from our land!)
 
I have probably browsed/bought from your stall at shows.
