what can you tell me about a grass/red clover mix hay

Grandparents just switched my 6 month old to this hay from regular grass hay. I was wondering the nutritional value of it if any and what the red clover is good for, I'll I came up with when I researched it was that it can give them the slobbers.
Thanks.

If your grandparents decided to switch - why didn't you ask them why? Generally speaking, a legume hay will have better nutruition, feed value, etc. The slobbers come from a mold sometimes associated with clover. But if your grandparents are financing the operation, it is their decision and you should respect that. And it has apparantly worked for years for them!

This is thier and mine first horse and I wanted to find out more about the hay. All they told me was it had less nutritional value and didn't answer me when I asked why they switched. As she is my horse they'll feed her what ever I ask them too. I am trying to figure out if this is a good hay for her before I make a decision to ask to switch her back. And as I've never heard of the mix before I'm curious about it.

You can get it tested and it isn't that expensive.

Nutritional it depends on too many factors to say it is better or worse without testing.
