thank you for the input on this situation. I am having his teeth looked at again tomorrow. The previous owner could of been mistaken on when they were last done. Thats the only possible reason that we can think of that he would be choking on grass

BTW yes we have tried feeding on the ground and in an elevated bucket as long as we soak his food to make a mash he doesnt choke.

Ill post tomorrow after he gets his teeth checked to see what the guy says.

hi there i have a very greedy cob and he choked on me when i first bought him soaking his food has made a big change and if it does happen walk them round it also helps if you rub down the the left side of there underside neck you can sometimes feel the obstruction in the gullet it can help to move it down when you walk them they carry there heads low so just walk along with them but if it keeps happening have the vet out if your horse is quidding his teeth could be the problem

Juliaann2 -- when you are posting, would you please use capitals and punctuation? It makes it a lot easier to read and understand your post then. Thank you.

My horse choked from a raised corner feeder and I was told by the vet and several other people that I should feed him on the ground not raised up. Which makes sense, thats how they are meant to eat naturally - with their heads down.

Ok so i got his teeth floated on Tuesday. They werent REAL bad but they did need to be done. He had 4 jagged endes. The guy said it could possibly be the cause of the choking on the grass. He claims he hasnt heard of it, however if chewing the grass was painful the guy said that he could be swallowing before he is chewing fully, which could cause him to choke on the grass. Since tuesday he hasnt choked but it wasnt a daily occurance so its to soon to tell but Im hoping for the best!
