Ugh!!! Bulk is huge waste of money

So, I have been refraining from saying anything--thinking that maybe it's just my pigs being picky. But after reading the reviews, I know I'm not alone! I've ordered Oxbow Western Timothy Hay 25lb box about three times within the last year. I don't remember a problem with my first box. But for the last two boxes, I had to throw away at least 1/2-3/4's the box of Hay. What everyone in the reviews is saying is true! there are super long, thick straws of hay, that my guineas won't touch. Unfortunately, that's the majority of hay that comes in these bulk bags. I've read the thumbnail images and it's interesting to read how we can receive bulk pricing (win)--because it's easier for them to pack the hay as a bale (win, right?)-- Nope! *they arent sifting through the bulk hay*. that means they aren't sifting those larger pieces of hay out of our orders. They say its the perk of bulk! (for them!) more convenient to package hay as a bale, that's the deal. It saves them time and money. So we are paying more money for 20-40% worth of usable hay OR we buy a 10lb bag which has 100% usable hay. :( (lose-lose for us) I really wouldn't recommend. I've wasted so much money.

Long time customer, but not any longer

I guess I’m disappointed but also comforted to see other reviews that have experienced the same thing with this product here lately. We have been buying this same product for this company for several years. I would say for the last 4-5 months every time we have received this it is different, looks different, feels different and in not a good way. I was patiently waiting before finding a different company to get our hay for our rabbits to see if the company would get their act together. Well needless to say I have had enough of their expensive, poor quality product! I will be finding a new company to get our hay through. It’s sad they have went downhill since this product is for people’s pets. Owners only want the best for their furry ones and this is no longer it!

Be Aware of plastic

I realize that this is Oxbow’s issue but I wanted to make sure to warn everyone to watch out for some type of plastic in the hay. In addition what is the deal with the massively long pieces of hay? My buns won’t even eat them. Attached is a small bunch of blue plastic type of something pulled from the hay.

Very Disappointed

I always buy the 50 pound box of Oxbow hay and this shipment of hay is horrible. It's extremely hard and brittle and not fresh. They hay is almost all light brown. It's suppose to be green. It's to hard, it's like my rabbits are trying to eat sticks. It's not even the same texture that I normally get. It does not look like oxbow hay either. It looks like hay horses would eat!!!!!

Hay is way too thick

The hay I've used from every company but this one is softer and smaller sized. This oxbow hay (I get the 50 pound box) is giant and thick, especially recently. It's difficult to fit in the hay racks, and it makes it hard for my piggies to eat because they can't get past all the big hard pieces. All 6 of my babies prefer softer hay, so I always have a ton of these big hard straws left that I just have to throw away. I feel like I'm wasting my money - the bulk of the hay isn't usable.

Much too large for Guinea pigs

I am very disappointed in this hay. Normally I use oxbow for my 4 guinea pigs, so I thought I would order in a larger amount. The hay contains thick stalks that would be more appropriate for horses. The pigs don't want to eat most of it, it just gets thrown around their cages. Very disappointed, will not be ordering again.

Will not buy again

I have bought the large 50 pound boxes before and not had any complaints till this last box. It is all stem, and large stems at that, I farmed for many years and had horses that would not eat hay with stems this size before. I do not know how you expect a Guinea pig to. My daughter is so upset that all she does is put the hay in for them to eat in the morning and then throws it away at night because it is to big for her Guinea pig to even put in her mouth. Maybe the smaller packages are better because there is not enough room for the large stalks but this is ridiculous.

More straw texture than Hay

Our box of Oxbow was sadly more like straw than hay. The leaves and seed heads were huge. It must be a bad year for hay because we received two boxes with this texture hay from two reputable brands. Four stars for great customer service more so than quality of hay.

cut too Small mostly dust

We get the 90oz usually but it’s a big bag and harder to store- so we got the smaller bag the last few times. The 40oz bag is cut so small that it mostly falls right out of the hay manger and has a lot of dust. Never an issue with the 90oz bag where just the bottom feedings we’re smaller and dustier

Usually good, terrible this time

Usually great, this time it's more like the stuff you see on barn floors, more straw like, that nothing wants to eat. My guinea pigs and chinchilla will not touch this stuff. I am out $70+ this time on a 50lb box. Very disappointed
