My horse did it over the summer. He didnt want to move. Now he still doesnt want to move forword. Was your horse like that?
It does cost some more, my horse is picky though and on top of that not an easy keeper. The first time she tied up I was graining her heavy, like I said she's didn't hold weight see the vicious cycle there. It happend right away in our warm up, she just locked up and sweat came out of every pore. I called the vet out and a shot of banamine helped bring her out of it. I was riding her again a few days or a week later. That was two summers ago. She did it again this spring but I was still figuring out the feed and lack of turnout was the cause.
The Grow N Win is just a ration balancer,and the ground soybean is her source of fat calories. That's the nice thing about a two part feeding system, I can substitute cereal grains with the soy.
Turnout is the most important part though, that way they are burning off the sugar they do get. I even regulate pasture time because of sugars in the fresh grass. I might not even put her on pasture the day before I have a planned ride. Posted via Mobile Device
