My mare is a fatty girl
My 8 yr old Arabian/Welsh mare always looks like she is in foal. She has a big barrel but is fatty in her shoulders, elbows, butt and crest.
She is fed 2 flakes of Rye hay twice a day and approx. 1 - 1/2 cup of stale mix a day. She put on more weigh over the last 6 mos or so because I was not able to exericse her as regularly as I am used to doing. Now she is getting ridden quite often, arena work and trail rides but the weight won't drop off of her. Cushings crossed my mind. She only get carrots as treat, no sugary horse treats. Should I just work her more and feed her 1 flake instead of 2?
