Re: [RC] feed prices...the rest of the story :) - Carla Richardson/Carrie - Kitley, Carrie E Civ USAF AFSPC 30 MDSS/SGSLF

I have to heartily agree with you here, Carla!  I can't imagine my life
w/o my horses and I would probably pay pretty much whatever it takes to
keep them happy.  Shhhhhh, don't tell the farmers!!  =)  (but that
doesn't mean I wouldn't complain about it once in awhile.  Lol)

Sometimes I think if I didn't own horses I could have been incredibly
wealthy - ha!  In terms of $$ anyway.  Nah.  I think I am wealthy,
because I have my horses.  

Yesterday our hay guy delivered more hay to us, and said he would bring
200 more bales next weekend.  There's nothing like a beautiful, big
stack of hay to make me feel secure.  <G>

Yes, sometimes we all need to stop and look at the "half full" glass.  I
can still buy gorgeous hay at $150 a ton (when I was paying $80 a ton
just a couple of years ago) and I am more than happy to pay for it.  Do
I whine sometimes... sure...that's normal.  However, one does need to
get a grip occasionally and realize that most of the world thinks anyone
who owns a horse is incredibly wealthy.  CC

That is so true, and especially in agriculture.  We've been blessed in
this country with abundance in good land, resulting in inexpensive food,
inexpensive agricultural products overall.  That will not always be,
with increased pressure on the available, arable land, with less
irrigation water in the west, and more variable weather patterns.  And
the ever-present energy demands.

It is amazing to me that hay, good grass hay, and grass/alfalfa hay, is
still available to me at $4.50 and $5.00 a bale.  That is such a great
deal, all things considered, and I'm thankful.
