"Wild" Hay

Well, it seems that no stores around here sell (fresh) hay. Or if they do it's alphalfa, which I've read is bad for rabbits. There are a few hay fields around here, and I was wondering if it'd be okay for Leo to eat that? It's prarie(sp) hay, but I'm not sure if that's good or bad for them.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Grass hay is usually ok, provided you know for sure it's not alfalfa.

We use locally grown grass (it actually appears to be Timothy hay) hay, with no problems.

If you are not sure, can you check with a stable where horses are kept? If it is good for horses, it should be good for rabbits. I get hay by the bale all year around from a friend who has horses. I don't know what part of the country you live in, but if you get snow in the winter, sooner or later you will need to find an alternate source.
