Grass is growing, isn't it?  :innocent:

Less and less of mine are coming in for hay - I'll probably  stop soon.

I've never known a hungry sheep turn down hay - they will eat straw if they are hungry.

I only feed my sheep on awful hay that nobody wants so they give it to me as opposed to burning it (note: by "awful" I do not mean "wet") and they do just fine.
