Simple as that.

hd0 means "first harddrive",
the ,0 means "first primary partition on drive" (slice in FreeBSD-speak),
and the ,a means "first sub-partition" (partition in FreeBSD-speak).

Adjust the values as needed.

You'll get the GRUB boot menu first, then the FreeBSD boot menu second.
Thank you so much!

I in fact found out this exact solution in parallel to your post. That is what got it working for me.
