Old Hay New Grass

Today Juri and his horse helped us to transport the remaining hay from the field (where it had been stored as a haystack all winter) to our barn. New grass is growing again and within two months new hay will be ready to be scythed and dried. Seasons are overlapping and flowing, they come and go, old makes place for young. While the fresh April grass is nice and juicy, it is also so rich in protein that too much of it would upset our horse's stomach  (and could even provoke laminitis, an inflammation of the hoofs). So a combination of the new grass with the older dry hay from last summer makes the perfect spring meal.
