I get the idea that you are a troll.
The OP asked about changing his feed, he has allergies, you cant change a feed without knowing EXACTLY what he is allergic to because you could be giving him something that he is allergic to. Which grass is it that he is allergic to? which pollens set his allergies off? If you feed him the wrong stuff and he has a real allergy it is a very real possibility of killing him. I've had one horse go into anaphylactic shock from picking up some grains of barely that anouther horse had spilt, I nearly lost him and I have no wish for anyone else to go through that! Heck he reacted badly to most CHAFFS as most of them use barley straw to bulk it out.
I once changed his main feed from allen and page sugar and cereal free mix to spillers intolerance mix, both feeds designed for horses with allergies to barley and most cereals. I only changed because the A&P was incredibly difficult to get hold of, had to be special ordered and often took 6 weeks to come through, the Spillers mix contained traces of wheat and my pony reacetd very very badly.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
