Belle 2-14-13 013.jpg

This is the one I'm most worried about...she's 15.3 and just a big girl...I've been making sure she's seperated for the lastmonth because they are always chasing her off. she was thin when we got her 5 months ago.

No no, I didn't say stop working him. I said IF you'd stop..
Your horse is in perfect working condition, really nothing to worry about!

It all comes down to who's winning in the end.....right
You could do what I said above, about a pound of soaked alfalfa pellets a day with a cup of veggie oil, per horse. Gives them more energy, doesn't make them crazy and just might make that tiny difference.

Yeah, as a sweet feed, sort of. It could be even half a pound alfalfa pellets, but soaked, not too soupy, and the oil added. But start slow with the oil, little more every day, over the course of a week, 10 days, until you're at one cup. Otherwise you could find some rather runny poop
