Terrible - short, hard stalks, Would not stay in hayrack, fell on the floor to be trampled and peed and pooped on. Worst of all - a clear danger to haypokes of guinea pig eyes and delicate ******** areas.

Devoured by the guinea pigs... a clear favourite, though a bit expensive, probably as it is imported from the US. Would be good to have British Hay to support home industries and reduce carbon footprint.
