Quick Question about rain and pasture?

I have a quick question. It has been raining here off and on and our land is wet. Is it okay for our horse to eat just been rained on pasture land? Will this affect her in anyway. Our hay is nice and dry and she will get some as soon as the rain passes, but she insists on being out in the field eating grass/weeds as it's raining. I mean horses in the wild have no other choice right? Just having a blonde moment :) Thanks for any replies

It is not a problem. Our horses are in the pasture rain or shine.

It should be fine :) Some horses even eat soaked hay to reduce dust.

Just make sure to check for any mold in your hay reserves if it's been moist this past few weeks.

Rain is just water and grass is edible, combine the two and you have wet grass, no problems for anything that can eat grass & drink water to consume.

If we would get some rain, I'd go out and stand in it too!

She will be fine.
