When feeding HayCobs dry, feed them separately, not as part of a mash or sprinkled on top of a feed. Your horse must be able to chew them thoroughly. If your horse is prone to choke, do not feed dry. Instead, soak thoroughly to make a mash before feeding. For veterans or horses with poor dental condition HayCobs can be pre-soaked with warm water to make a tasty mash. As a mash, it can be used as a carrier for Thunderbrook Base Mix, Daily Essentials or other supplements. If soaking the HayCobs, we recommend that you soak them for at least 3 hours, or preferably overnight, to make sure there are no hard centres left in the mash.
