As you know, I live in the desert, near Palm Springs, but I board my herd of 5 horses (all rescues) up in our local mountains. A wonderful, knowledgeable woman, Cathy, boards them at her ranch. She breeds and raises Peruvian Pasos and has over 20 horses on her ranch. Hubby and I are very happy with our horses being in Cathy's experienced hands, as we have only had our horses for 3 years, after our children left home. Cathy always has a huge pile of hay for the horses and one time I asked her when her next hay delivery would be. She said soon and I just happened to be there when the crew showed up! Yes, ALL that hay was for her! She buys hay (alfalfa) 4x a year. I learned she's been buying from the same alfalfa grower for over 30 years! They have a good working relationship and now his son and son-in-law are joining him and helping him deliver they hay. I hadn't seen the little truck at work before. Well, truth be told, I hadn't see a hay delivery before! So, I'm sharing it with you for ABC Wednesday, March 10, 2010.
