Alfalfa cubes

I know there's at least a couple people on my friends list who have large animals, so this question is for them.

Our sheep don't seem to like eating compressed, cubed alfalfa.  I'm guessing the cubes are too big or hard for them to eat comfortably.  I've tried breaking them up by hand, but this is really time consuming (not to mention murder on my hands), and I've tried using a hammer, which makes a terrible mess.

How are you supposed to feed this stuff?  Are they just supposed to gnaw on the cubes?  The bag mentions something about soaking them in water, but will the sheep eat wet alfalfa?  Does it make the cubes softer or cause them to fall apart easier?
