Hello! I have a question. My guy loves hiding out in his hay. He knows no one will bother him when he's in there. My only big issue is that it sure is messy and it's a pain to clean up! I was wondering if it would be bad to take this big hay pile away from him and put up a bunch of hay racks (like pictured below). Or are there any other less messy hay options? Thank you! (Sorry if pictures are small- on my cell phone, and they may turn out smaller than normal)

If you have enough room, I suppose you could get a large litter box or something similar and just empty it when needed?

You can also get hay bags. Taking piles away for hay racks would be a bit disappointing for them!

It would be a real shame to take his hay pile away, they do love to burrow in it. My boys have a collection of baskets (plastic) they love to jump into and burrow, I also put hay in boxes and paper bags which leads to some energetic games. I have found whatever I put hay in most of it usually ends up on the fleece, I brush it out with very stiff brush in the garden before washing.

I got mine in Wilco, its the type you use with a dust pan but with the bristles like a yard brush, didn't cost much (less than £4 pos. £3?).
