Weighing The Hay

I love knowing just how many Lbs is in every haybag per day.

Our barn owner is fantabulous, because she weighs each hay serving for each horse.

I was half-fantabulous too, for a short while, until my lungs almost shut down and now I’m banned from hay duties.  Anyway, this little hay scale is golden!

Valiosa was getting a bit pudgy with her extra rest.  Knowing it was not because of eating some massive loads of hay, I could quickly adjust her grain.  All that weighing is So worth it!  She’s an easy keeper, so it’s always a bit of a balance job.

Below was last month in July;  learning to jump a low triple bar.  Some more of this, but mostly consistent riding, and she’ll be back down to perfect weight again.

  1. At the barn that I just moved from, we had a great scale, similar to yours. I t had a nice hook at the end so you could hang a bucket. There was a small dial to neutralize the weight of the bucket which made it even easier to use. I’ve only been at the ranch for two weeks, but I already miss the scale. I definitely need to just get one for myself.
