Is there a problem with clover mix?
I have found a wonderful, honest hay dealer whom I love very much...and Cinny loves his hay. He is well respected in this area and now the racehorse farms have found him and buy out much of his hay as well. I usually buy either his brome or his prairie mix. This year he said he noticed that his prairie mix seems more like clover mix. I didn't see an issue with it at the time and as grass mixes are Cinny's preference I bought it up.
Well, Cinny LOVES it. In fact he now eats his hay before his grain ha ha. How often does THAT happen with a horse? Anyway, someone asked me what was in his hay so I told him that this last batch has some bales that the grower says have a good amount of clover mixed in and she wrinkled her nose and said I should NEVER feed clover. What????? I have NEVER heard of this before. So what's the big deal about clover?
