Just out of curiosity, what does she look like now?

^ Well, she looks all fluffy and muddy right now! XD
I will take some more pictures when I either have time to take them back to an arena or when the weather dries out so I can brush off the mud...
But when I sit on her now, it doesn't feel like my likes have to poke straight out!

Dont be deceived by thinking that a horse has to be overweight to have metabolic syndrome or IRS - look more for those odd fatty deposits that the other person posted on the grey pony - cresty necks, patches of raised dimpled looking bulges on the quarters especially, sometimes around the sheath in geldings
Restrict grazing, if you need to supplement hay then choose a feed that's been produced for horses that have a metabolic/laminitis risk condition and try to exercise as often as possible
My own vet recommends a chromium/magnesium supplement after having good results with it on a pony he 'adopted'. My old mare had problems some years ago after being fed a sweet mix while on a boarding yard for a while and her appearance is now pretty much normal - no crest at all since I started her on Quiessence.
