October 2022 Soft Timothy Hay Report
The 2022 Ultra Premium Soft Timothy Hay we have in stock is currently a second cut. This hay was specifically chosen from a high mountain field for its unique qualities that allow it to be a really great Soft Timothy Hay.
Here is the report on what we have in stock:
Overall Rating: 8/10
Harvest: Second cut of pure Timothy Hay, it was harvested in September of 2022.
Location: Northern California
Color: Deep Green
Stems/Stalks: Almost no stems
Leaves: Made up of mostly leaves with the leaf length up to 6-8 inches. They are nice and broad. While they seem to be a little on the short side, they are maintaining their structural integrity and are not breaking into leaf crush.
Seed Heads/Flowers: Very minimal seed heads, the few I could find are all very short 1-2” tops.
Leaf Crush: Almost none
Weeds: Slight Brome, which is actually a Hay that we sell in our Mountain Grass, it is a nutritious grass hay that is completely safe for your pet to enjoy.
Brown Leaf: Light, this is why we rated the hay at a 8, there is only a small amount of brown leaf. The rest of the hay looks so good!
Summary: This year's Soft Timothy Hay is an okay example of what Soft Timothy Hay should be. It has minimal seed heads on the short side, however, because of the high amount of leaves and the stem size, we find it works well for Soft Timothy Hay loving pets. The only reason it doesn't receive a 10/10 is the light amount of brown leaf scattered throughout.
