    Yes, you do need to get the hay tested, as that alone can be enough potassium as to trigger attacks, and you can't know its potassium level by its look or cutting.

    Yes, and my point is they don't add sugar - there are things added with sugar in them, such as molasses (and oats, and corn, and barley, and other things, just like the grain in the CA feed). ...
