Re: Shopping for hay <plumgood@...>

Has anyone ever worked out a "taste test guideline?"
When I was a kid, we used to chew on hay. We
especially liked to chew on the "joints" of the stem.
It was sweet. What if one put a tiny bit of water
on the hay and then chewed on it to get some idea of
the sweetness or starchiness? The horses must be
able to taste the difference. I wonder if we could?

I cannot find hay that has been tested, so I will
have to buy it and then hope that the tests show that
that I don't have to soak it through the winter.
