So I was told to switch my gelding to nutrena empower balance as he's pretty fluffy and once I put weight on him it seems to stick. My mare is the same way although going into winter she needed a bit of a push to keep weight on but now she's doing good.
During summer they're both muzzled from 5am-3pm and on 3 acres 24/7. There's only my two and my mini donk out there who will be permanently muzzled round the clock, unfortunately.
The vet said to switch him to the balance now as he's pretty 'fat' according to her but to me he looks just right. And plus he's got a massive coat. My trainer said to switch them both in the spring as this winter has been pretty brutal am they're doing fine on what they've got now.
My concerns are that if they are on a ration balancer during the winter what if they loose weight on it or can't keep weight on? I always get nervous changing feeds but the vet recommended it so I definitely try to listen to her!
Any input bout ration balancers or nutrena empower balance?
