October 2021 Medium Timothy Hay Report
The 2021 Ultra Premium Medium Timothy Hay we have in stock is currently a second cut. We hand-selected this batch because we knew it would be what you and your pet were looking for in a Medium Timothy Hay. This hay is a little Coarser than what we had in stock last year. This year is much more typical of what we expect out of our Medium Timothy.
Note: If your pet got used to our softer Timothy Hay that we had last year and you are concerned let us know and we can send you some samples of both.
Here is the report on what we have in stock:
Overall Rating: 9.5/10
Harvest: Second cut of pure Timothy Hay, it was harvested in September of 2021.
Location: Northern California
Color: Dark Mint Green
Stems/Stalks: Averaging 10-15 inches long in length and most are thin in diameter, smaller than 1/16th of an inch. We did occasionally find a thicker stem.
Leaves: There are a high amount of leaves with the leaf length up to 8 inches. They are nice and broad looking.
Seed Heads/Flowers: Fully developed with fine purple blossoms, average length 2 inches in length. Most seed heads are short and small with the occasional larger seed head in the mix.
Leaf Crush: Minimal
Brown Leaf: Almost none, the only reason this didn’t get a 10/10 was that I found a few small flecks of brown leaf. This is almost as good as it gets!
Summary: This year's Medium Timothy Hay is a great example of what Medium Timothy Hay should be. As the hay is a little Coarser than what we had in stock last year, it's much more typical of what we expect out of our Medium Timothy. The only reason that it doesn't receive a 10/10 is the very few flecks of brown leaf scattered throughout.
