Hello,

In Az we bought Bermuda Grass hay for our girls ( large mini and shetland pony). We feed pellets for their alfalfa but, know they can't have a large amount. So anyhow we are in WI now and looks like we may have to move here for a yr. or two due to DH father being ill. We have to take care of the land and farm. Sucks as I LOVE Az. Anyhow we found out that last years growing season sucked for grass hay. We found one person selling hay for horses and we called on it. However we have no clue if this is all grass hay just different types. So I'm asking you all on your opinion and make sure its fully grass hay!

Here is what the guy said it has a mix of:

Birdfoot

Trifoil

Blue Timithy

Now this is 300 pound round bales for $30 each! We will of coarse look through it BEFORE buying to make sure there is NO mold!

SO any input would be wonderful!

We feed what would be called mostly mixed grass hay, in our case it is orchard grass, timothy and a little clover. Timothy and Birdsfoot Trefoil should be fine for horses as long as it is not moldy. We do not feed round bales to our minis, although we have fed them to full size horses outside , because they have a tendency to be more moldy as they are often stored outside.
