I'm going to pick up some alfalfa bales tomorrow. I've never bought a bale before because we use round bales - and the alfalfa we have been using is stuff that hubby raked up in the feed room at the horse farm he works for - it wouldhave just been thrown away and the girls love it! But....we are out! I have good mix hay for them and alfalfa pellets, so I am not overly worried, but the first few weeks they are nursing we want them on a ration of alfalfa. Grass and browse will slowly start coming in soon, so by the time we wean them to just alfalfa pellets and hay....they'll have browse. So my question is.... the farmer has 2nd and 3rd cut. Which would be best? AND how many bales do you think I could fit inside an SUV? I have an Oldsmobile Bravada so it's very comparable to a Blazer. I can put the back seat down. We have always bought round bales....and they were delivered. Any help would be appreciated as I'm just not sure....I want to cram as many bales in as I can though!
