Soaking your hay question

I'm just wondering when you soak your hay or alfalfa in a bucket for an hour, I know you rinse it off, but do you have to dry it for a while or do you feed it wet? It's the middle of a very hot summer here in Australia and I'm thinking wet might be good?
I'm soaking it to leach out the sugars for my mini. Thanks
