Losing more and more weight!
Okay everyone in serious need of help! Nova just seems to get ribbier and ribbier!
As far as I know she's getting fed grain in the morning its like a scoop of some type of grain that has 14% protein [srry forgot the name] and 1/2 scoop of hay pellets. Ill see if I can get the actual measurements and names. If it helps??
In her grain she gets vegi oil, garlic, and red cell [which is a blood builder]
She's in a 4 acre pasture of mostly just grass and 1 bale gets put out there at least 5 times a day.... its only shared with 6 other horses.
She gets worked almost every day for an hour or 2. Mostly w/t with a bit of canter..thats both riding or lunging.. or the occastional trail ride that consists of A LOT of trot. Im starting to wonder if I should feed her 2 flakes of hay after each work out to maybe get the calories back in her idk...
She's having trouble gaining anymore muscle cause she has like no body fat... but WHY is she losing not gaining?! I don't want to just stop working her cause then she would lose all her muscle. :\ and that's the only thing making her looks some what decent..
THe vet did a complete blood panel and everything.. she's fine just needed a blood builder, which she got..
She just got safe gaurd wormer put into her so I doubt it has anything to do with worms. I could get a fecal done but I don't have the 65 bucks on hand to get it done, and I already owe $800.
Confused owner here!
