I just a new horse. She is clearly overweight and I am in a rut because she is in a pasture with a pregnant mare. So my horse will eat her half flake(it's a big flake still) and we give the other mare 2 flakes. My horse will steal some of the pregnant horse's food but she usually lets my horse know to back off. Anyways, I don't know what I can do to make her lose weight. She is eating alfalfa because it's cold weather. I tried giving her just grass hay tonight but she looked at me like "what the heck?" haha.
I ride her everyday. There might be a day or two that I don't but other than that I ride. And there isn't much for her to eat in the pasture.
Let me know if there is anything I can do.
I want her to stay in the pasture with my mom's horse so we can ride together. I would hate to stable her.
