Our neighbor is a farmer and because his horse lives on our property, he gives us free rounds of hay. They are wrapped with a plastic twine. All we need to do is get the skid steer and move them from his property next door to ours.
There are other rounds for sale in the area that are wrapped tightly with a white plastic. These cost $55 each and we would have to transport them.
We don't have a barn large enough to hold the rounds so they must stay out in the field until we use them. I don't mind buying them if they are healthier for the horses.
1. Are these plastic wrapped rounds better for the horses health?
2. Should we purchase the plastic wrapped rounds?
3. Will the horses' health suffer is we use the twine wrapped rounds?
