New horses are super skinny
I was recently given two wonderfully trained horses from a family friend. His oldest daughter had stopped working and caring for them, and he had put them in the pasture with the cows. Well, no grass, and fighting off the horses, plus a change in feed (the feed store told him it would be great because it had more fiber in it?!) left them super skinny. They have been in my care since saturday, so obviously I'm not going to see any improvements yet. But after another *sigh* change in feed, they are doing great. They are cleaning their meals, and haven't had any signs of runny stool. (Plus side, one has stopped bullying the other away from the food.)
Anywho...I'd like some advice on what else I can do/give/supplement with to help them gain good weight back, and not just fat. They also have free range hay (Maybe good, maybe bad, but they had the same at the last pasture, as well.) I'm interested in starting a coat/hair supplement to help the paints mane and tail out, its super thick and wavy, but just short.
Thanks in advance :)
