I feed both round bales and square bales. I keep a round bale in the pasture and allow the horses to eat free choice. If a reason occurs and I can't get another round bale out then I switch to the bales.

I bought my three horses 20 round bales and 75 squares and hope to be good until the next hay season.

If the hay is not high quality the horses won't eat all of it. So, buying low quality hay is really more expensive than buying good hay that the horses eat.

I would get the alfalfa orchard mix, and feed half prairie and half orchard/alfalfa. Do you know how much alfalfa is in the orchard grass?
