She didn't. :-)  I agree with all the comments made so far.  Good quality =
good nutrition.  Elderly hay = straw = good fiber source, but lacking in
protein, energy and various other vitamins.  Minerals stay intact for the
most part.

Usually, if a horse isn't cleaning it up, quality is the reason why.
