OK... so hay update...
I feed them Eragrostis hay, but I wasn't sure whether everyone here on this forum would know about it, so I googled it, and it seems that its grown in the US as well, so maybe there are some opinions on that?

The only other hay options available here are Teff hay, but it has recently gotten so expensive, and costs twice as much as the Eragrostis, and obviously we have lucerne (alfalfa I believe its called too), but we don't feed that ad lib.

My feed store reassured me that the Eragrostis, although slightly lower in protein than the Teff, is of good quality, and should not give me digestive concerns. My other horses don't have hay bellies and are healthy and shiny coated...

They are all out to pasture during the day, and stabled at night, with hay. And are also fed a pelleted grain mixture that I know is of excellent quality as it was suggested to me by a vet, and the amount of which to feed was also determined by the vet for each individual horse.

I really don't know why I'm writing this... except that maybe someone has an opinion on Eragrostis hay specifically? Unless there are objections, I really would like to keep feeding it, based on my budget only. Of course I like Teff more, but the prices have shot up so much... :(
