Re: Hay sampling and Maximum acceptable starch levels
I would not purchase a hay with more than about 2% starch for a sensitive horse (even 2% would be pushing it for me) . 4% starch has the same effect as 8% ESC, and starch cannot be soaked out. And of course you still have the effect from the ESC in the hay added to the starch.
