Wow! Glad she is ok. Glad you're ok too!
Christy choked once, but no where near as bad. I just rubbed her neck for a while and kept her calm. After about 15 minutes, she relaxed, and in another 10 minutes, she went back to her feed.
I have make sure I feed from the floor level. Buckets, or hay goes at floor level. So does water. I make sure her apple and carrot are cut up into bite sizes for easier chewing. Christy is young, so I don't have to worry about teeth, (just had them floated anyway.) But when I had an older horse, I soaked his food, prevented him from choking.
Sure hope your baby doesn't do that again!
