Worst moment of my life yesterday

Last night when I was feeding my horses, Teddybear was almost done eating and then she chocked!I instantly began freaking out!I was crying and it wouldnt stop. I immediately got water and got her to drink some and then I helped her spit out the grain that she chocked on.
I told my mom to call the emergency vet but by the time the vet got her Teddy was fine and was eating grass.
I could have lost her last night, it was a night I will never forget
Teddy is all better and is eating grass as we speak.

Thank you very much.
Teddy means the world to me and I don't know what I would do without her.
The whole time I was crying, even when she was okay that's how happy I was.

I would suggest maybe wetting down her food for a couple meals just to err on the side of caution. =)

Like put some water in her food a couple hours before she eats so the water soaks in it and makes it softer?
I can do that

Add a little oil. It will help it slid down. I have also been told to take a turky baster or a sering and put oil down thier throte to help the choke eather come back or go down.

My horse choked on a prickly twig thing.
When I went to his paddock he was already choking anf was in a sweat and panicking.
I freaked out because I didnt know what to do. In the end I got hold of him and slapped his neck (sounds more brutal than it was) and he coughed it up and was fine.
Im so glad I turned up when I did. Could you imagine if I was ten minutes later?
Im glad your horse is fine :)

Corn oil burns hot, you'd want a veggie oil. What kind of feed are you using and how old is your horse?

I assume the vet suggested soaking her feed for a while?

Choke in a horse is not like a choking human. Though it looks ugly they can still breath.
