Some horse owners soak their hay to reduce the amount of sugars, or non-structural carbohydrates (NSC), in the forage. Horses that require a low-sugar diet, such as those with Laminitis or insulin resistance, might benefit from soaked hay. In addition to removing sugars, soaking also reduces some minerals, making this soaker the perfect container.

A bit about Laminitis: Laminitis is a crippling condition which can be fatal in severe cases. Once a horse has had an episode of laminitis, they are particularly susceptible to future episodes.
