Of course! Now I'm feeling a little foolish - although I have seen bags of Timothy hay which looked much less rough than this so perhaps this is the quality stuff! Interestingly George hasn't been embedding himself in the pile which is his usual way of laying claim to anything new... if we bring grass he always ends up 'nesting'. When we had the two girls they had to try and eat it out from under him!I think it says "feeding hay" to distinguish it from hay suitable for bedding. Being timothy hay, it's too stalky and rough to be bedding - as well as too expensive!
