I give my piggies Oxbow timothy hay but they favor the soft hay over the hard hay. Could anyone recommend soft hay?

What cut is it? I believe the lower the cut the softer the hay. So 3rd cut hay is softer that 1st cut. Kms hayloft has third cut hay, and really high reviews. Plus, it's super cheap, even with shipping!

Third cutting is softer but less fiber. Orchard grass is softer and sweeter,than 3rd cutt, and has about the same amount of fiber as 3rd cutting
