Interesting. Here's a horse/farmer question. Nobody I've asked really knows because they're all dumb like me. What exactly is hay? Is it like wheat or grass or something?
It's made out of Jude.
Hence the Beatles song..."Hay Jude"!!!!

Just buy the hay and feed your horse. Horses are not cheap but you already knew this before the price of hay went up.
Oh Well

Not any longer but I use to train hunters. Go to claiming races and rehab/retrain them. Sure do miss them!

Hay is the general name for a number of dried grasses, flowers and other plants used as off-season food for horses and other animals. Hay producers usually grow rye grass, oats or alfalfa in large open fields and wait until the leaves have reached a specific maturity, generally just before their flowering stage. "Jute" not Jude, is a fiber that's in two different Asian plants and is used to make rope.

Hey TV Dad: hay: it can be a lot of different things- poor quality hay is mostly just straw, or grass...better quality is stuff like timothy hay- the more green the hay is, the more rich its taste is - to the uh, horse,..cause uh, i've never tried hay..
