I remember reading something on here about homemade probios, involving milk or maybe even horse poop??
I'm starting to stress about getting weight on my new guy. He came to me two weeks ago from a not great situation. I know that's not much time but I've seen zero weight gain even though he has been on pasture and oats/beet pulp.
We have very long cold winters and its already getting cold at night (he was shivering this morning, he might need to be the first horse I've ever blanketed)
I did worm him, his heaves (which were bad when I got him) are under control for the time being. He doesn't like the beet pulp so I'm cutting that down but will be searching for a high calorie pellet/ration when I get home. I'm also going to start adding oil and more flax. I think probios would be a good idea too! (And I'm trying to find someone to look at his teeth)
