If you ever watch horses grazing in a field, you'll see that they spend all day walking back and forth eating the most palatable grass first and eventually working their way to the less palatable. It is not unusual that they will eat 'tasty' grass all the way to the ground before moving on. Similarly, in round hay bales, they will pick through it the same way, often eating from the middle or bottom if necessary.
Our mares are easy keepers and will eat just about any hay/grass/feed, but they certainly do have their preferences.

On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
