    help putting on weight!

    Hey everyone,
    I have a 14hh appaloosa mare who when we bought was very underweight. We have tried everything to put weight on her and have wormed her multiple times since we have bought her, but she hasn't put on much weight, if any. Has anyone got any ideas of what could be wrong and/or how to fix this???

    We had a gelding that would only put weight on full time grass. Hay would help, but unless he was on grass his weight would drop. We don't have grass in winter so he had to go :( was a good dude. We feed round bails so he was on hay 24/7 as all our horses are. Have you had her teeth floated? Makes a huge difference. How old? What are you feeding? And 24/7 hay is a must. Or better grass

    They are out in that paddock 24/7. We also feed them hay and I think we are feeding her copra and pony pellets as well. We tried millrun as well. Yes, we had her teeth done. She is 6 years old. We had a round bale in their paddock, however by the time they finished it it didnt make a difference on her wieght.
