Re: Trouble finding suitable hay

Kirsten Rasmussen

I personally would soak but you know better how sensitive your horses are.  I was soaking a hay that was 10.5 % ESC and 0.7% starch, and my horse's insulin was still over 80 on it (danger zone).  A horse with less severe IR, and/or well controlled PPID, and/or that is exercised more might be fine on that hay, unsoaked.
