Hi everyone- I hope this post isn't against the rules- if it is I apologize. I'm not looking to bash Sweet Meadow by any means- my bunnies love their hay and I have one of their farms only 30 minutes from my house, so I go there often. But I'm curious if anyone else has had problems with their bunnies and the regular Timothy or Organic Timothy & Herbs. A while ago, another member's bunny got PB after eating the Timothy from there and they had noticed that it was very "leafy". Then I noticed the same thing about my hay- lots of leaves and other stuff in the hay- and BunBun got PB. So I just didn't feed the Organic Tomothy & Herbs anymore, but still gave them the Sweet Meadow 1st Cut Timothy and the Sweet Meadow Hay with no problems. In fact, I'm still feeding it to them.
Then last week I got a bag of regular Timothy Hay from there, and it didn't even have a lot of leaves in it, but BunBun got PB again after he ate it . Now Nelli is fine, so obviously it's only some bunnies that are sensitive that react this way. I was just curious to know if anyone else had this happen? And also, has anyone heard of Canadian horse hay? It's being sold down the road from me and I'm wondering if it's something special. Thanks!
I think you are talking about me. I purchased this hay 4 months ago because it was cheaper and I got alot. With my disabled bunny kamdyn I have to be careful on the food that I do feed him. I have for years been purchasing oxbow hay when I recieved the sweet meadow farms hay it had alot of leaves in it. Which oxbow never does. Oxbow also has these things that look like cattails my bunny kamdyn just absolutely loves those and i actually didn't find them in the sweet meadow farms hay at all. There hay wasn't as greener. I am not here to bash the company I am just stating what i received. I personally will stick to oxbow because I like it. My bunnies did eat the same amount. I don't know if while being on that hay it did cause kamdyns poopy butt because he is on metacam and is disabled so that might have caused his poopy but also. I did contact the company and they said the hay that has leaves is normal. I forgot to mention Kamdyn does have cancer.
