    This might be a strange question, but is 3rd cut Timothy Hay supposed to have these sharp brambles? I usually buy from RabbitHole Hay but they were out of stock on a 3rd cut I wanted to try, so I went to Small Pet Select (Which seems like a big mistake). I ended up cutting my hand so bad it...

    Big Boy?

    Hey everyone! My new-ish boar, Gus, is four months old. I was just wondering if he is pretty big for his size. I saw a sow from my city at the state fair that was a dalmation too. She was probably from the same local breeder. (FYI, I am not a fan of breeders. I am hopefully going to adopt...
