I do know how to get weight off a horse... It takes a while to do when you can't do anything but hand walk them... She has to have grain for her supplements. She gets Safe Choice Special Care but only 8 ounces of it so she can have her supplements. She gets only 4 flakes of hay a day. She was off work for 8 months and had been on a round bale because the barn owner wouldn't feed square bales. I'm extremely careful about what goes in her mouth.
