Does anyone know how long it takes for baling twine to go through a horse's system? We're trying to figure that one out because Ace passed a length of it today. It had knotted itself somewhat, so the length of the mass was around 12- 18" and I am hoping there is no more left inside. Gayle noticed it dangling just as we were starting our lesson tonight.
All too often we find baling twine mixed in with the hay because someone is too lazy to remove it and dispose of it properly. The yellow and blue lengths seem to get lost pretty easily, especially if people sweep up the loose hay to feed to the horses.
It's scary--it could have caused a world of hurt. My stomach is still in knots.
