To be fed soaked: Lightly dampened with a litre of water and left for ten minutes, an individual MUNCH will soften and fluff up so that horses with poor dentition can easily bite into it. A soaked block should be fed immediately - long delays between soaking and feeding can mean, as with any feed, that moulds can develop.
