I have not had to soak hay in the Summer before, and when I got to the barn this morning, it smelled like a brewery! There was about 0.2 lbs. of hay left in each horses nets. I have read through the messages and have some good suggestions of what I need to do, mainly aerating it and smaller amounts in the bags.
My question is, what can eating fermented hay do to a horse? Colic? When I dump the fermented hay out of the nets, they all immediately start eating it. Is it a problem for a horse to eat small amounts of fermented hay.
