    she utterly hates timothy hay and always has done, nothing seems to encourage her on that side. I'm guessing if she doesn't like it, but has a healthy diet of other hays that shouldn't matter too much?

    daphne she likes grass, but only spring/summer grass. I guess autumn/winter grass isn't as nice. all the other buns are all year around lawn mowers, but I guess she's only for summer fields.
    Yes, it'll be fine for her not to have Timothy Hay if she will eat other hays To be honest Timothy Hay is not at the top of the list of favorites for my Rabbits. Despite having a variety of all of the more expensive hays my lot much prefer the baled farm hay that costs next to nothing !! Rabbits

    Good idea - best of all worlds

    Eating hays other than timothy is absolutely fine. Hay is hay and is good whatever

    I agree

    Perhaps it's not down to demand, but to the fact that there's not so much green oat grass actually grown?

    I've heard really good reports of that, and I believe it's bit cheaper than Readigrass?
