Thanks for the info and website, Lisa.  

She has her good orchard hay in for the year....she just brought this 
crappy hay to the barn this past Sunday and started feeding it to the horses.
We (the boarders & her 2 experienced barn people) know it is crappy, and are 
meeting to convince her that it needs to be thrown out.  I want to 
have some concrete information for her, so she won't feel like we 
are over-reacting.   She has to be "handled" a bit.  She's a very 
nice person who has gotten in over her head.  

Thanks again,
Orono, ME
