Re: Sourcing Tested Timothy Hay in So Cal

There is possibly a higher risk of ileal (small intestine) impaction when feeding coastal bermuda. This may be because of its lower fiber fractions resulting in less chewing, or being poorly chewed by older horses or horses with dental issues. It does not extend to other strains of Bermuda hay. Many horses do just fine on coastal. It also has nothing to do with making a switch to coastal.
