    YES!!!! People are using Senior care feeds to heal up and put weight on ALL ages of horses. They were formulated for easy digestion, palatability and the ability to add water and make into a mash. A study at Southern IL University Ag school several years ago found that elderly horses who were missing teeth put weight on with this feed, mashed. There should be instructions of how to feed in this way on the bag's label.
    I'm betting that in another year Twitch will have a beautiful coat. My adopted rescue, "Buster Brown" wasn't underfed--the rescue did their job--but my DD's told me how different and soft and shiny his coat is NOW, with a better diet.

    Are there any skin issues along with the hair change ? I could not tell by the pics, and you are doing a good job on getting them fed up and healthy! You could try a vit/min made for foals or young horses.
    Sr feeds are made to be easier to digest. I would not assume ulcers if they are eating normal, are not colicky, don't have loose poops.

    I would have agreed at one time but we've had to treat Flo twice now for ulcers likely caused by her arthritis pain meds - she was struggling to keep weight on yet still ate like the proverbial horse, no colic ever and normal poops. As soon as she was on the ulcer treatment her weight went back to normal

    The reason these are under weighy was from being starved and ridden to death they have gained a large amount of weight since I've had them

    Just an idea, my mare has spots like that (bigger) on her side and butt. I was told the are caused by a mutation of sorts in the coat. They are not caused by a fungus or skin issue or lack of vitamins/minerals, it's just their coat. Someone might have the right word for it.

    I can get a picture of Spice's spots if you like.

    Spice's marks are harder to see once she's got a winter coat because they are almost the same color. They are a light chestnut color, and she lightens in the winter and dark in the summer is when you really see them. The darker hairs are what's left of her summer coat, and she has bird catcher and bend or spots too.

    They are a little hard to see but you can see some of the lightest hairs, they are not white. This one is bigger than my hand with spread apart fingers and on her belly.



    Excuse her "rolls" she's on a diet but the weight isn't coming off her stomach very quickly.
