Its another blow to struggling horse owners: the price of hay is so high now more people can't afford to keep their horses. Joan Steelhammer with Equine Outreach in Central Oregon says during this tough economy they've had to do many horse rescues. They don't have enough room for all of the horses needing help. Lower incomes combined with high prices for hay has been a perfect storm. Steelhammer says in some cases hay is also scarce in part because it's going to another country: “A lot of the hay is going oversees.  It’s being bought up by compression buyers compressing it down and shipping it overseas.” Hay is also scarce in part because of a poor growing season this year. Steelhammer says they are over capacity right now at their horse rescue facility and they are still getting calls from people needing help.
