With the exception of my moms old mare (lived till she was 36), I have never really had older horses (usually sold by the time they reached 10 or so). My mare Chloe is going to be 16 next year and I was wondering what you would recommend for a feeding program for maintaining.
Chloe is currently out in the pasture during the day and at night the horses are brought up into the yard where they get free choice grass hay (with a little alfalfa). She is also fed some straight oats. Chloe has no sign of any joint issues and has no problem keeping weight on. She is currently on a full lease situation (she is kept at their place) so I would like to keep something simple but yet effective. She is rode almost everyday and is being used for mostly pleasure but the girl also will game and trail ride with her.
I attached a couple pictures of her from mid July so get an idea of her current body condition.
Thanks all for your help:)
