That’s what I was thinking, that it’ll help keep her warmer and will help her keep her weight on, but I wasn’t sure if I was right or not...
And I knew I forgot something... lol.
She’s 16 (well, she’ll be on April 18th)... She’s pastured with a donkey, a mule, four other horses, and around twenty cows.
She and my gelding are the only two animals in the pasture that are on a deworming schedule (they’re due to be dewormed again next month)
She gets free choice hay (though it’s not good quality, as my uncles buy it and they really don’t care about quality... they’d rather have quantity over quality)
I normally don’t feed grain very much, but during winter I feed both my horses soaked Alfalfa pellets (she gets two and a half pounds once a day).
It is frustrating... it’s only been these last three/four winters that have really been a problem... And I -hate- my horses looking like they’re not taken care of. My gelding is -fat- for winter... lol... and the other horses are in good shape, it’s just my girl that’s thin.
Um... can someone help me with the blanket types and all... I know absolutely nothing, couldn't even tell you the name of one... what should I be looking for, ideally?
