my rabbit Sugars absolutely loves the Oat Hay, my parents who are keeping him for me said that he will choose oat hay over timothy hay he loves it so much, my mom said that he will eat the botanical hay but not as much as he will eat the oat hay, I had 2 mini lops years ago and they absolutely loved the botanical hay, each rabbit is an individual with their own taste preferences and their own personalities, they are all special and precious in my opinion and deserve the best in life!
My rabbits adore the botanical hay, they could take or leave the oat hay. At first they ate the oat hay, but after a few times they left it alone.
My piggies like the botanical hay but they won't touch the oat hay. Maybe they are spoiled by orchard grass (their main hay) which is soft and sweet. The oat hay is very tough and thick. If I try to hand feed them oat hay they taste it and spit it out! I use it to stuff their treat tubes and they will pull the oat hay out to get the treats and then leave it on the cage floor. The botanical hay smells wonderful and they get a bit mixed in with their orchard grass as a treat now and then. Next time I'll just get the botanical hay.
Very nice looking for me, human being, I would definitely eat it but my guinea pig not very attracted to it. Sorry....
For the price I really like this combo and since both forms of hay is from Oxbow I know it is top quality. I am becoming a big believer in buying the smallest and freshest hay available as I have gone the economy size route thinking it cost effective, only to have 1/2 of the hay end up stale, old and dusty. Both my girls seem to really like both the oat hay and the are ok with the botanical hay though not as much as meadow grass.
All 4 of my GPs love the botanical hay. It can only be fed in small doses.The oat hay is extremely messy and long strands. Two pigs liked it, the other two did not. I used it for garden bedding outside.
My senior bunny loves the oxbow oat hay and it helps to keep his weight up. My picky bunnies love the botanical hay mixed in with their Timothy hay.
My bunnies loved it, good to add to their dog box. Their diet consist of Timothy hay and water only. Once a week I make them a dog box of a mix of these hay and dried rose petals. This is a good once a week treat as to not have them get tired of their usual hay!
My rabbits are fussy about their hay. Oxbow Botanical hay is their favorite!
My bunnies love the botanical hay but don't care for the oat hay. Not as soft & tasty to eat (?)
