I don't know what '4 way' or '3 way' mean, but guessing it just means they're mixed variety hays? That would be much better than straight alfalfa IMO.
I wouldn't feed alfalfa/lucerne as the main ration, as being so high in protein, calcium & such can be problematic, but it is generally a very good feed as *part* of a *balanced* diet. Generally regular grass is the best staple IMO. The lower NSC value grass is better for horses - rye for eg can be very high & while it depends on many factors, Timothy & orchard grass for eg are apparently generally lower NSC.
