The last thing I want to do in the dead of winter is make a feed store run. The trip itself isn't the issue, it's having to unload multiple bales and bags when there's snow on the uneven ground and ice beneath the snow that gives me issues. To avoid this annoyance, every fall I pick up enough hay, straw, shavings, etc, to get the rabbits and chickens through an entire year. In the past I just set it on pallets and tarped it, but the tarps always tear and leak and the bottom bales always seem to be trashed. This year I decided to build a hay shed on top of our storm cellar, which puts it within 3 steps of the rabbit house door and right next to where the truck backs up.
