That's what I figured, but I was reading an article on how the equine digestive system works, and according to that you shouldn't feed more then 8lbs of feed at a time because it moves so quickly through the upper gut. So if it only takes 2 hours to travel from the mouth to the beginning of the hind gut, and you feed 10lbs (I'm just using that number as an example) of feed, the nutrients are not getting absorbed properly which can lead to excess gas and impaction in the hind gut. So wouldn't you want to include water weight? I'm just so confused since reading the article. I feed a hearty amount of BP this time of year.
