She will eat it when she's hungry enough (and she won't starve). We went through this a couple years ago with one of our mares who was 'spoiled' after a load of very leafy hay. She would pick at the stemier stuff until she finally realized that if she didn't eat it, the other mares would and there would be nothing left for her.
Though we like to see our horses 'happy', I wouldn't foster being fussy by sorting through the bales, IMHO.
