    It's been a couple of years since I used them but have never had much of an issue with them not breaking up with enough water.

    If mold spores in the hay are part of the problem (for my MIL's horse, evidently the hay can just lightly have mildew - not actual molded/rotted/hard sections - and set him off) it may be time to...

    For my MIL's horse, even a well ventilated stall, stripped (no shavings) and soaked square baled hay doesn't help. What has helped is complete overhaul of environment and diet. He is now only...
