I totally feel for you! My horse is a horrible i finally have his feed down at the right wetness that he hasn't choked in a couple weeks. If it soaks too long he chokes or not long enough, it is horrible, but he has a thyroid tumor which we think is why he chokes. Thank goodness i work at my vet, and the day he was choking really bad the vet was there.

Pretty much what everyone is saying is what my vet told me to do. I wish they had feeders like they make for dogs that eat too fast. I tried to make one myself but my horse got mad and dumped his food over. I'm glad your horse is doing good, and hope it doesn't happen again.

I have a 'chrinoc choker'... My three year old geldning copkes on a handful of feed, literally. I'm scared to give him treats such as apples and carrots because he chokes so easily... I had to start soaking his feed into a runny soup just so he doesn't choke.

Last time the vet was out, I asked him if there was anything I could do ofr it and he told me that with the way he chokes, the only thing would be some type of surgury (though he personally wouldn't reccomend it), but if he was doing fine on the soaked feed, then just keep him on it and that he was sorry that I have, literally, a lifetime of soaking feed.
