the rice bran is gonna be HIGH fat... if she gets one bag of it and feeds it at the lowest level that will help ALOT!!! I think the mare could very likely have ulcers which have been discussed with her before on another forum... the grain needs removed and replaced with better nutrition and more fat and better calories!

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I agree with the possible ulcers on this one, as the weight loss was sudden, which I know can be caused by many things, but it reminds me of how my stallion went when he showed signs of ulcers.

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
