I will definitely try the beetpulp! I will hit a feed store today. She is boarded in more of a run, but I let her out daily to goof off with my friends horses.
As far as the whole hay thing, I always try to spread her hay around her pen as much as possible so she has to act more like she is foraging for it. I'm still feeding her three times a day as the stable master doesn't feed that often, and I don't like how he feeds the horses.
I try to push water for her a lot. Every time I give her her feed I soak it in water so she gets more. I actually don't see her pee or drink very often, but that's because I'm not down there for more then about 2 hours a day or less. (full time college student and 30 hrs/week job)
I ride her usually every other day, more if I had a new saddle. (mine didnt fit so currently in the "in between saddles" phase) But she still gets turned out for about an hour or longer every day.
I will try the beet pulp right away today. Thank you for your help!
