Hammer time

I tried soaking the alfalfa cubes in hot water; learned that wet alfalfa reeks.  The sheep ate it, though they didn't seem too enthusiastic about it.  It also makes a terrible mess.

But I think I found something better.  If I pound on them with a large rubber mallet, it breaks up the compressed cubes and turns them into loose flakes.  It's still a bit messy, but it's faster than using a regular hammer.  The only problem is that the sheep get curious and have to come over and see what I'm doing.  Then they try to help.  And by help, I mean, help themselves to some snacks.
