    PSSM update-Cheyenne

    Cheyenne tested positive for PSSM1. She has been on her new diet for three weeks now and she is doing great.

    So far we have seen changes like crazy. Almost all her skin sensitivity is gone. She is doing much better not spooking and settling down when asked. She is no longer leaning on the farrier. No more stifle locking up. Almost all the weakness in her hind end has disappeared. She stumbles a little bit so I will be upping her vitamin when it gets here.

    Here is what she is on (this is for one day)
    20lbs straight alfafla
    2lbs of beet pulp
    4lbs of alfalfa pellets
    3000IU vitamin E
    2mg Selenium
    2 1/2 tbsp magnesium oxide
    1 c ground flax
    Source
    1 oz salt
    2 c oil

    Currently no turnout due to the issues starting at the spring of last when our grass came in. We are going to let her pasture get mature and do limited turnout in the mornings and dry lot the rest of the day.

    Glad she's doing better! There's a horse at my trainer's barn that also has PSSM, and with the modified diet she can still be ridden. I heard they might even be doing low crossrails soon. She also gets taken for walks 10 minutes a day, which really seems to help. I don't know much more beyond that, but good luck to you and Cheyenne anyway Sounds like you're on the right track!
