To soak our grass pellets for horses, you can use hot or cold water. Soaking time can vary according to the density of the pellets, but as a guide we would expect a 2 hour cold soak or 15 minute hot soak time. Equally the grass pellets can be left through the day or night to soak. We would suggest a 1 part product to 4 parts water soaking ratio to produce a mash, but you can add more or less water according to your horse’s preference.
