Hay What hay is best for a piggy with stones?

My Archie had a kidney stone removed last year, and consequently needs to be on a low-calcium diet. I've read online that timothy was a good low-calcium hay, but the vet told me that timothy was too high in calcium and we should feed him orchard grass. Our bale of orchard is almost gone, and KM's out of it right now. There is a local feed store that I've gotten hay from before, but it's really hit and miss. Sometimes the bales are fresh and fragrant, and sometimes they look green but after we get them home and cut the strings it's a bunch of yellowing sticks on the inside.

So, my question is: is timothy hay ok to feed to a piggy who's prone to stones, or should I look for a better alternative?
