In our corner of Michigan the first taste of snow arrived just after Thanksgiving.
The other big news at this teeny tiny farm is hay. Do we have enough? Where do I get more? And how much does it cost?
Our hay supplier, for the first time since we got the donks, left Michigan for the winter. Which meant we needed our full winter supply by Thanksgiving. We filled the horse trailer, we filled the hay aisle, we put some in a storage shed. But I worried we wouldn't make it until he comes back in the spring. So I started calling around. Found two places with hay. I'm used to paying $6/bale. I just paid $11/bale! Believe me I only got the bare minimum to make sure I wouldn't have to worry.
