What is the hay that you feed horses with?
Hay is usually dried grasses. It may contain legumes such as alfalfa or clovers as well. The main difference between hay and straw is that straw is what's left over after the grain of a cereal grass has been been extracted. It consists mainly of dried stems and leaves and has a lower nutritional value than hay. Straw is mainly used for bedding, while hay is primarily used for fodder.
