Second cut timothy is the stuff most people feed to their adult rabbits and guinea pigs. It has just the right amount of protein and fiber. Your animal should have an unlimited supply of fresh hay at all times, to prevent GI stasis and digestive issues...and keep you out of the vet office. Hay is also the main way our little friends keep those teeth worn down, so hay hay hay for everyone!
Is your animal bored and not eating enough? Try mixing in some Orchard hay, Orchard Medley, or our super special Gourmet Hay! Our Herbal Blends can help renew interest too.
Quality Characteristics of 2nd cutting
1. Leafy with soft stem and a medium amount of flower heads.
2. Easy and enjoyable for pets to eat while providing sufficient fiber.
3. The texture and fiber is in between 1st cutting and 3rd cutting. Many people consider 2nd cutting to be the best of both worlds, and it is the most popular hay we sell.
We have close relationships with the farmers in Washington State (where we started, and the home of one of our two warehouses). We personally choose what hay we like by going to fields, seeing and smelling and touching the crops. Then we hand pack every box that goes out, so we see it all again. Our eyes are on everything that comes to you, from the field to your door, so we can get you not only the best hay, but the most consistent hay. This keeps your friend's digestive system happy, and you know what to expect from us.
