Hi Cindy,

Soaking hay can reduce the sugars up to 30%. The items that you lose
in soaked hay is not nearly as consequential as the high sugars
without soaking.
Just to add to what Joan has said,I think the other thing that is
reduced by soaking is potassium,and my understanding is that there is
usually enough potassium in the diet to cover for this loss.
