We are selling out anything we have that eats hay. Three horses, a milk cow, and a mule. Our land just can't support them on it's own and we have to feed hay all winter and supplement with hay in the summer. We were just informed that next year the man we have been buying hay from is almost doubling the price and i can't blame him! his fuel alone has almost doubled along with the added price of fertilizer has gone up. I added it up in a month already we spend more on the animals food than we do our own!! I will really miss our horses and our cow but we just can't afford them anymore! We will keep our chickens and ducks and a couple of geese but that will be about it. Anyone else in this situation? Be nice if wages went up with the fuel, then maybe we'd be able to keep 'em!
