Got a nice email from Standlee Hay Company offering some samples of their timothy hay, alfalfa hay and alfalfa pellets. Here is a pic of Cliffy from yesterday enjoying some of their alfalfa mix from Tractor Supply Company. The horses just LOVE this stuff! And their timing was impeccable because, as anyone in Michigan can tell you, we have had a beast of a season. The hay shortage due to drought last year was immediately followed by the longest, coldest winter on record in recent years. Standlee is pulling us through to first cutting -- for which we are truly grateful.
You could say they "take a sad song, and make it better." Here's to better days ahead!
