Re: Help with newly diagnosed horse with PPID -- higher meds or different management?

Hi Laura,

The answer is "it depends on the horse".  Some horses can't even tolerate hay that's close to 10% and will start showing discomfort within hours of eating it.  If your hay is over 10% ESC+starch I would be soaking that hay.  Even if your hay is under 10% if your horse is showing any signs of discomfort soaking is the first thing to try to see if that helps.
