Ok....as in Liz's thread talking about fat goats...what is a good flake size (what naturally flakes from bale)? , some say they give x-amounts of flakes a day for x-number of goats.....but what size is the flake? I am thinking maybe I should cut back on the boys hay.......I have always just filled their 4 hay baskets everytime I go out to the barn and see that they are empty or low, which is several times a day. I will admit I have alot of hay waste here. My boys are so smart and braty, they know when I walk into the barn that I am going to give fresh hay.....I have created spoiled brats! Jake bellows if I don't and gets the other boys going! So I have 4 wethers and we go through approx. 2 bales a week (small square bales)..... does that sound right?
