Standlee Hay Company, a family-owned business based in Idaho, grows and manufactures an extensive line of forage products including mini cubes, timothy grass and compressed bales. When the company asked me to use and write a review of its horse feed products, I said SURE!
Then I thought Wait! I have no horses!
On our farm we grow crops—cotton, rice, soybeans, corn. No chickens, no cows, no horses… other than a yard full of cats, we never had animals on our farm.
My horse experience is limited to betting on the ponies at Oaklawn Track each spring…
Luckily, I know farmers with horses…
My friend Edra Perry Senter, grew up with cotton and horses. She and her gorgeous horses, Toby, Sue and Tiny, readily agreed to try out Standlee Hay products.
Toby, stubborn and tempermental by nature, typically only eats oats, yet he loved Standlee alfafa hay.

Look—he was practically grinning…

The difference between Standlee alfafa hay and regular grass hay was obvious…
Standlee Hay received a resounding recommendation from Edra and her horses. Heck, they loved it so much, I may see if my schauzers will eat it!
Edra purchased her Standlee products at Orscheln Farm and Ranch in Paragould, Arkansas. For a complete list of products and a retailer near you, check the Standlee Hay website at www.standleehay.com.

Great job once again Talya! Thanks for thinking of us, the horses and I enjoyed it!

No, my pleasure, thank you!!
What an awesome review for you to get to participate in!! I have tried all sorts of hay methods with our ponies through the years and there is nothing quite as lovely as the smell of good quality hay and alfalfa cubes. Almost makes me want to eat it – haha!
I love the way you wrote the review – just like a story. And the horse is so beautiful.
