Well I have not had my mare tested to see if she is IR but I have heard its not a bad idea to feed them like they are either. She is a VERY easy keeper and was obese for quite some time before getting her back with me. She is now slowly getting back into shape and loosing weight but she still needs to loose more!
I board her at a barn. THe area we live in is pretty much not very horse friendly. Vets are non-existant pretty much....most people do their own shots and a small animal vet will come out to tube for mild colic anything serious we have to haul to UGA which I believe is a 3-5 hr drive if i'm not mistaken. We pretty much live in the woods. :( I'm realizing that if I am dealing with a IR horse that it could be hard to get her tested for it without hauling her (we don't own a trailer)
So I was wondering as a precautionairy measure to try to feed her as an IR horse to see what that would do? It can't hurt right? I have access to BP. Right now she is on a 6% fat feed..i don't know if it has a name or not the BO said she has her food specially made?? Its a pellet type with 6% fat that's all I know. I don't know how hard it will be to get her to let me switch food??
