She does get hay in the morning and a small amount at night after her hard feed.

At night, feed her hay first. NEVER feed grain after a long fast. It's hard on their stomachs just to have hard feed dumped in there when they're on empty. A little alfafa (soaked cubes, pellets, hay) before a meal may also help. Alfafa contains calcium to buffer the stomach. Also, a small hole hay net that allows her to eat small amounts all day is a wonderful thing for a horse.

Start there and tell us how she's doing. :)

Oopps sorry. I give Garlic as it's good for digestive tract, seaweed is for her coat and the apple cider vingear is for the prevention of arthritis. I got into the habbit when I first got my other mare 12yrs ago. At that's what was on their feeding plan and thought it did so well I continued it with all my horses I never bothered to change it.

Do you think it's too much?

It could possible be, you probably should still get her check out for ulcers incase. but maybe she cant handle all of that and just needs hay and what ever grain you use

painted pastures, based on the verbiage in the OP's post, I feel like she? is from across the Big Pond somewhere. Thus the reason for the different terms

I looked up microlupens and that is a feed product from Australia.

Hygain Micrlupins - Micronized lupins

It sounds like a good feed but looking at the 34% protein, it then begins to sound a like a contradiction

In the U.S. the protein source for 99.9% of bagged feeds and ration balancers is soy.

I don't have a clue what the protein source would be for a feed made in Australia. That very high protein may innocently be part of the problem.

The G/A also does not list the ingredients. If it's full of the proverbial "roughage products".

The product is called "flakes"; looking at the picture it resembles our human cereal of corn flakes.

Again, looks quite good reading the bag, but mehbee not good at all when dealing with ulcers.

Perhaps a complete diet change of what goes in the feed pan (including not feeding the apple cider vinegar or garlic) is best until the horse can be scoped.

I have a horse with mild gastric stomach ulcers and he cannot handle garlic or ACV.

walkinthewalk Maybe shes feeding this by volume instead of by weight its says to feed by weight. So maybe to much is being fed that could be the cause of the stomach pains after eating. Ulcers are aslo very likely too. I did read the post last night but dont recall if its was by weight that this was being fed.To lazy to go and read first post.

Thanks,I figured as much but the OP never did say after questioning her use of words & their meaning never did get an answer. I can guess the wording at what things pretty much are but would have been nice to have a clarification
