eatting hay

I'm at my wits end! The colt I rescued wont eat hay! I bought a bale or orchard grass today by recondmentation of my vet, and he wont touch it! What do I do next?

Re: eatting hay

Have you tried chopping it up real fine and mixing a handful or so in his grain? That might do the trick. If he's been a long time without good nutrition it may take him a while to get with the program. Good luck.
