We love the 2nd cut Timothy. Our guinea pigs have had KMs for over a decade and it must be a part of their well being and happiness. The freshness, the aromas, the quality, and the perfect balance of leaf to stem and seed head in the 2nd cut is unmatched. There arent many companies that I can blindly trust like KMs. Unbelievable service which will never leave you disappointed. Let your little guys try all their hays, they know what they like.
