Keep a eye on him, sounds like a minor case of choke. Like said above, massage his esophegus. If he starts having discharge come out of his nose and mouth, call the vet immediatly.

[QUOTE=barrelbeginner;1724674]I think part of is was 'dislodged' when he coughed it up... This has happened before with him.. Is there something that causes horses to do this?[/QUOTE

Needing to get their teeth done, my old mare just has hardly any teeth left.
With my other guy he just bolted his food down and forgot that he was supposed to chew first (we must have missed the memo that the world was going to end in the next minute and he was not going to die hungry)

I would have a vet do a thorough exam. A healthy horse should not be choking on hay fed from the ground without another cause.
