Ok, I got a question - until now we've fed the regular sized square bales of hay to our goats. But recently my husband asked a farmer (my husband works on the farmer's property) about his round hay bales sitting in the field. They've been there for a year or two in the open weather. The outside layer/s aren't much good - but DH said that if we'd take the outer layers off - the rest seems fine. My DH also asked the farmer who said that the hay would be fine if the outer layers were removed. So my husband brought a few home - he got them for FREE. So what do you all think ? Are they ok to feed my animals if we remove the outer layer/s ?
