Okay, I actually have a couple of questions!
I will most likely be moving my horse to a new facility in May where she will be on 24/7 pasture turnout. My concern is that she has been on a dry lot all winter long and...as far as I know, will not be turned out onto grass by the time we move. The place we are moving to does not have any dry lots either. What could I do to ensure that she doesn't have any founder issues after we move? I know that I can put a grazing muzzle on her but I'm still worried even then she'll be getting a bit too much high sugar grass.
My other question...I have had her on a multi-vitamin supplement all winter but now since we will be moving and have access to alot of grass as well as high quality hay, should I take her off it? She's been on VITAPLUS, from smartpak. She won't be on A LOT of hay, MAYBE 1 flake AM and PM, that is still to be decided on how well she does.
I also had/have her on Nutrena Youth, but am in the process of switching her over to AET Easy Keeper, which I buy from a local company. She was on 1/4 scoop of youth and 1 scoop oats that my barn provided. With her being on the grass, should I have her on about 1/2 scoop of the Easy Keeper? Or should I keep it low with her being on grass?
Hopefully that all makes sense! Feel free to ask questions if you have any as well.
Any response would be great
