I really have been trying my best to do the right things for her and I have been doing alot of research, but each site or book says to do something different. That's why I am looking around the fourms you all have been through this and know alot more than me.
My mare seems to be around the same in months gestation as yours... I will load a picture of my mare.. My mare was on the thin side when I got her, she has since gained weight. However, when you look at her head on you see a wide birth, and then that's it, however, she has just picked up weight as of late, even though I was always giving her the same amount of pellets. I did buy me some bermuda pellets at one of the big feed/ barn stores in between Roy and Willard utah. WHile I was out there last summer... I would just getr her some 4-in 1 sweet feed.. add that to her morning and nightly meals... That is all I do and she has been gaining weight... I would give her 1 to 1/2 cups per meal added to her pellets or hay... I have noticed that my mare will only eat her bermuda HAY when she wants too, however, it is always out there for her if she chooses.... Have you fed Pellets before? When I first got my mare she had never had them and she loved them immediately... She has went back and forth with them and she loves them wet as well.... just a thought... best of luck..
