Hi Karen,

Great news that your hay tested <10 ESC/Starch.

Are you in the process of having minerals balanced to this hay? Are you giving loose iodized salt with minerals?

Horses drink 8-10 gal ( if not more) of water /day.

They will probably transition fine to the hay- keep an eye on drinking. Added loose salt will entice more water drinking, especially in warm summer weather.

Are you worrying for nothing..............I would say no but always a good thing to be ahead in the game! They do keep us on our toes!


Hope this helps,
Susan
