With creatures around there are always things to do in the morning, they will be waiting for you. These guys get let out during the day and I’m being accused of being late!
We have had a horrible drought this year, I normally count on supplying the horses hay through the winter but they normally have field too. It is very important to have a back up on food including multiple sources if possible. It is easy to get all of your hay from one place but if they run out other suppliers will sell to their regular customers first. My primary supplier normally runs out in February but they ran out two months ago. I have my emergency hay that will get them into summer but I will be feeding more grain than what I would like.
