^^^ Agreed. Around here Johnson grass is considered a 'pest' grass in pastures, as bad as weeds. It grows very fast and tall and will take over unless you keep it mowed down. Horses will general eat new growth, but once it gets over a few inches tall, they won't touch it unless there is nothing else. If the hay has lots of Johnson in it, I bet your horses won't be happy with it and you'll wind up with a lot of waste.
Coastal (bermuda) is a good, southern grass/hay for horses.
