The beautiful hay we carry called "bluegrass" is actually a hybrid seed my farmer has developed. It is an orchard/bluegrass seed. For those of you that are used to orchard grass, this will be similar except it has a beautiful blue/green color. After viewing more that 30 farms and countless hays, it just didn't do justice to call my hay "orchard", so I have chosen to call it "bluegrass". It is a wide bladed, leafy variety that is soft and pliable. Nutritionally, it is equivalent to orchard grass.
That they literally run and play in it, WHILE eating it:) I could not spot the smallest one in their cage yesterday because she was BURIED in the hay pile, happily chomping away. I cannot wait for them to try the pellets next!
