Thank you guys! I mostly just ride her recreationally, and in all these pictures her back legs look crazy. Lol she doesn't stand like that normally. I don't plan on breeding her, at 17 I think she's a little old anyway. I figured she didn't have the best conformation, but I would never be ashamed of her. I love her more than anything, just wish I could get some more meat on her bones.

What types of feed and how much are you feeding her? That is, if you don't mind me asking.

I'm not sure what the brand is, my barn gets it from a mill. She gets a scoop and a half of that once daily along with Cool Calories fat supplement.

How much hay does she get and what kind? Next time you're out at the barn, take a good look at the nutritional information on the feed bags. Write down how much fat, protein, and other stuff is in there.

Also, do you actually weigh your feed or just go by scoops? Ideally, you should really be going by weight because one scoop of a certain feed may weigh significantly less than the same sized scoop of another feed. Unless you know how much you are feeding by weight, you can't be sure that she's actually being fed enough.

I give her two or three flakes after I ride, and the rest of the time she has free choice hay and grass. I go by scoops, which I think are a pound each.

If you're taking about the Mill (I'm almost positive they have a location or two in PA) it may just be Smart Carb. That's their most popular feed, kinda what everyone buying pellets goes with. If that's the case, our fatties are on it to keep them from gaining weight... Just make sure it's not that, because if it is she would need a lotttt of feed to put on weight.
