03/16/2013: "Nothing is better than this!"
I have to ask myself if what appears to be HELP is actually a false promise with a kiss. Many horse owners are facing a trying time right now in the state of Michigan. The cost of feeding their horses are at an all time high. With round bales coming in and 100.00 plus and square bales at 8.00 plus trying to give your horses a proper amount of hay has quadrupled this year.
It is the same with us. The drought caused us to lose quite a bit of our own crop forcing us to buy hay at a much higher price. I have been getting steady emails…from Michigan Horse Collation, a nonprofit group that says they can help in a time of need.
Well for the first time ever we here at hugs reached out…..and asked for help. We stated with needed help in finding hay at an affordable price. That we would be willing to pay for the hay at a price not greater than 5.00 if MHC could help pay for the cost of getting us some hay we at a later date could even pay MHC back.
Strange….all I got in response to my query was a hop, skip and a jump. They sent me a link to Michigan hay growers out of a Michigan listing that of course we had already exhausted. It’s not like we are stupid here and cannot attempt to search the internet for hay. We have found a lot of available hay….just not at a price we can continue to meet.
I certainly hope that MHC does not count us on a list that they acknowledge they have helped during a time of need. So be careful of what you ask for….their so called HAY BANK….for us turned out to be nothing more than a list …with a good luck following it.
Thanks for nothing Michigan Horse Collation!
