Western Timothy Hay - 9 lb. (Ships Separately)
Due to the weight and size, this item ships separately. We are on the West Coast - so yes, this may be pricey to send to the East Coast. We do not pad or make any $$ on the shipping. We just try to keep the product price as low as we can.
HOW TO SAVE ON SHIPPING IF YOU JUST WANT TO ORDER A FEW OTHER LIGHT WEIGHT THINGS WITH THIS: Place a separate order so that you will have shipping options, otherwise this order will be defaulted to the carrier that is cheapest for the 9 lb box of hay (Fedex Ground) and that's not always cheapest for other products under 5 lb.
