To Soak Or Not To Soak........

Recently, I've been wetting the flakes of hay given to the girls. Technically not soaking, but spraying them with the hose, usually for their evening feed. I started doing this, because it been so darn hot and sunny, I was worried whether they've been getting enough water. And then watching their poop as usual. Although their troughs are freshened daily and cleaned twice a week and they've been drinking, I noticed a slightly dryer poop, so I began soaking their evening hay and I noticed their poop has been much better. I do this for obvious reasons. They have no choice but to get more water
