Soaking hay - silly questions
So I will be soaking hay for my laminitic gelding when he returns home. I've tried this before with my older mare who's teeth aren't so good any more. She found it muy no bueno.
Can I soak for 30 - 45 minutes then allow it to dry so as not to offend her highness? I thought I would just soak a batch ahead. Soak in the morning, allow to dry for the evening meal, etc. or does that defeat the purpose of soaking?
If I feed it somewhat damp, if they don't eat it right away, do I have to worry about it molding, and if so, how quickly will it mold?
