Sick Haflinger?

Hey guys I was just curious if maybe one of you have heard of these syptoms my haflinger is having. She eats manure and she is hardly shedding, her coat is rough and she's more moody than usual. Any Ideas?

wow that sounds bad...I've never heard anything, but I hope you find out what it is.
I'd definitely contact a vet on this though.

If she's eating her manure then it would *seem* to me that she is missing something in her diet...someone isn't being digested so she's injesting it again to try to have it be digested

The symptoms are rather vague and could be related to alot of things. How old is your mare? Have you temped her to see if she's been running a fever? What are you feeding her?

Yeah that's what I though. Each of her syptoms are common but all together I was getting worried. She's 7 years old. I thought maybe her eating the manure was lack of nutrition or she is digesting her food well enough. She's not on grass right now and i'm feeding purina strategy and timothy hay. They have mineral salt blocks avalible to them. I was thinking maybe about putting her on probiotics? Or maybe a vitamin supplment.

If she's really worrying you then it won't hurt to have the vet out.
