I've done this, it works like a charm :)

Brewers yeast or sea sacc is excellent for the gut and will help any horse get the most out of the fibre being fed (cheaper than Pink Powder or similar supplements for good gut bacteria).

Thanks for posting the latest photo. I think I can see some improvement but its very slow
Have you had any blood tests done? I wonder if she's got encysted worms that don't get removed by a normal worming and cause ulceration and anemia as well as weight loss.

No blood test done.. I have Dewormed her once the day I got her then again last week with different wormer to kill other worms.

You need to use a wormer that's specifically aimed at killing encysted worms - not all of them will do that and they are probably the most dangerous of all the worms if they get a grip on a horse

You've been posting long enough about her now where she should be looking much better. Pretty girl but she does have an overall uncared for look about her. Encysted strongyles may very well be a problem.
