Unfortunately, the new hay isn't a big hit with the donkeys- and I bought 15 bales of it! Part of the reason is probably because it is past the season for really good hay, and the other part is that the donkeys are just a tad spoiled! But the old hay was always eagerly gobbled up- and when I took out a flake of hay from the new batch, the donkeys had to do a big sniffing routine on it first before they started munching. It could be that it takes them a few days to get used to new hay- which most likely came from a different pasture. This particular hay comes from Oregon, and the young man who delivered it said he just drove 100 bales up north to a donkey sanctuary! So I'm not too worried about the hay...especially since I have a few month's worth!
