I tossed a little of the new hay on the ground before feeding the sheep and donkeys this afternoon. They all gobbled most of it up then went to the feeder for their regular hay. But Suzy and Biddy came back to finish off the small pieces.
Seems they really like it.

OMG Maria, their wool looks soooooooooo luxurious and beautiful!
I didn’t shear them this fall Nancy, so their wool is nice and long and thick. I love that you noticed!
It’s possible that this hay, seemingly grown in a regenerative agriculture way, might have nutrients than regular hay. Some books you might find interesting:
Fred Provenza’s Nourishment (admittedly long and sometimes dense)
Judith D. Schwartz’s The Reindeer Chronicles (can be alternately hopeful and saddening)
Daphne Miller’s Farmacology.
A new book that I haven’t read is Dirt to Soil published by Chelsea Green out of White River Junction, VT. I heard him on a Doctor’s Farmacy podcast on YouTube. It’s Dr. Mark Hyman’s channel. Chelsea Green has a number of interesting books on this theme.
I would imagine they did Kathyrn. Thanks for the reading ideas.
ooops – meant more nutrients than regular hay
You’re welcome Maria.
