Before and after

I posted a thread a few weeks back about Rylie's weight loss. It got to the point that I didn't even want to look at her, I was doing EVERYTHING in my power to put weight on her(vet,dentist,lots of turnout/ hay) and nothing seemed to be working. I think it bothered me the most because my gelding looks like he is pregnant with twins. I want to thank everyone that took the time to give me their two-cents about weight gain because it really helped, I changed her diet around and it is almost like day and night. I'm a little worried about posting these pictures because she looks like a skeleton,which makes me look like a horrible owner, which I don't think I am at all. Anyway here they are

I agree that you are not a horrible owner if you recognized a problem and did everything in your power to fix it. Good on you for seeking help and putting it into practice!

I'm curious what you changed. I have a mare who is a really hard keeper, and I'm wondering what I could do differently to get some meat on her bones. . .

Thank you all

Payette I first switched her from Purnia Senior to Purnia Stradigy. She is also on soaked alfalfa cubes

AM
  • Two quarts of Stradigy
  • Two quarts of dry alfalfa cubes(not sure about how much it is once soaked)
  • Three flakes of hay
PM
  • Two quarts of Stradigy
  • Three quarts of dry alfalfa cubes(again not sure about it when soaked)
  • Strongid C 2X measured for a 1,000 pounds
  • Three flakes of hay
The alfalfa cubes are kind of a pain, making sure that you have enough soaked for each feeding but it is worth it!! Feeding the daily wormer Strongid C 2X had helped a lot too. I have only had her on it for a little less then a week and I can already see a difference in her coat and stomach. She wasn't wormy by any means and is on a worming schedule but my trainer suggested it to get rid of the worms that had built up an immunity to the schedule. She also is turned out on grass a little bit each day and gets a flake or two in the afternoon when I get home. I hope this helps a little!!
