I'm starting to get over the whole "oh look a yard sale" thing, except once in a while when I get a good feeling about a certain neighborhood or the way the sign was made.
I had one of those feelings the other day out in Apache Junction, and this is what I found....
The gal ended up giving it to me, because we bought a few other things. They had some other stuff that I would like to go back for some day. This is one of those "everyday" yard sales. I just love this little pic. I wish I knew who this guy is. Actually I'll bet I can find out. I will research it and share what I find.
We went to Casa Grande yesterday for Simon's football game where they won again, but boy howdy was it a close game. So now it is on to the final championship game of the season. They might actually win!
After the game we ran over to Stanfield. There is a company there that makes hay pellets rather than cubes. I am addicted to the cubes, as are my horses, but the only cubes available around here are from Sacate, and they are just to expensive. I bought a few sample bags to try out, to decide which blend I want to buy in bulk. There are few different blends and I am unsure as to which one I want to use, or if I want to stick to just straight alfalfa. You will have to biggefy it to see my options.
I bought a bag of the Relieve, the Relax, and the Total. The man who makes them recommended the total for older hard to keep horses, and the relax or the relieve for horses that don't get ridden everyday. He also encouraged me to keep up with the grass hay. He believes that even though there is the bermuda in some of the blends, having the true roughage is still paramount to intestinal health. This morning I have Danny some Total mixed with his senior feed and the rest got some of the Relieve and then grass hay along side. I'm introducing it slowly. My concern is that they are all mixed with 7% corn. I was under the impression that corn is not good for horses. When I asked about that, he said that straight corn is very bad for them, a small amount is ok, and he cooks his first to make it even more digestible.
I will be sending some samples into our friend over at Dancing Donkey for a true analysis.
Just for the record, they seemed to love the stuff, but then my horses have never been picky eaters. Well except Danny, who refuses to eat the grass hay. Luckily he will still graze so he is getting the forage needed.
I was hoping to get to ride today, but I don't think that will happen. A friend just called who is in dire straights and needs me. Sometimes ya just gotta go help. This is one of those times.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
