HAY STOR­AGE CHECK

EQUUS - - Hands On -

One of the joys of early au­tumn is a full hayloft or shed. Be­fore you load up the bales, how­ever, take some time to pre­pare the space in a way that pre­serves the qual­ity of the hay in it.

First, check the roof for leaks. Tell­tale signs are wet spots on the floor after a rain, but you can also close any doors to darken the space and then look up for pin­points of sun­light stream­ing through de­fects in the roof.
