Finding a good source of hay is a huge weight off my mind. It's one of those things that has been difficult and troublesome in past years- either we got stuck trying to get out of the other farmer's driveway, or the hay was expensive or not good quality, or just a really far drive, or I call people and they don't call me back. It was not very smart on my part to keep putting it off because of my fears of it being difficult, however, I did put it off until the situation was critical, as in "We need hay in two days".
But thanks to Craig's List, I found someone selling hay just 13 miles from home, and though they couldn't deliver, I went and picked up 11 bales in my new minivan, and then went back again for another 11 bales. There is plenty more if I need it. It wasn't snowing, or raining, we didn't get the car stuck, it was good hay at a super good price, and my older kid helped me. The van is a complete mess and my back is hurting, but the sheep are happy.
