Mare dropping weight over night
My horse is loosing weight so fast now winter is approaching, and was hoping someone might be able to suggest something I haven't already tried, or sugest something i may have missed health wise.
She is a TB x ISH so typically a "ribby" bread, but she is dropping weight sooo fast at the moment, she looks like a rescue case. Her worming is up to date, and she had a 6month checkup 2 weeks or so ago where everything was okay, and her blood tests where clear. She is her self in normal activity and her coat is glossy and shes alert and no different to normal. She is 13years old so not dropping weight due to age, and gets fed 2 feeds a day which are made up of, blue chip build up and conditioning mix, alapha a oil, motozla corn oil, marmite, black sunflower seeds, aconite and a probiotic gut balancer for effect digestion. Plus 24 hour turn out, although i no there isnt much left in the grass atm, but she will be moving in on sunday. She does windsuck/crib bite, but I tried a windsucking coller and she refuses to eat and drink with it on, so I can't keep it on 24/7, tar stips and hair spraying the top of her door doesnt seam to stop her either.
Thanks in advance x
