Yeap. She was doing good until the cold hit. She stays blanketed and I have many different weights so she never gets cold with her blanket. If bad weather she stays in. But she was off mare magic for two weeks while I was trying to find some. In that time she got really hot and ran around like a nutcase. So that may have added too it.
Oh and she gobbled her alfalfa pellets right up. Posted via Mobile Device
I may put her back on flax. The last time she was also on healthy glo rice bran. That may have been too much for her. So maybe once the rice bran is gone I can try it again. I bought salt to fix her iodine issue lol with shot glasses to measure. Why do they not make small measuring cups that measure ounces?! Posted via Mobile Device
I use anything plastic, Cool Whip or margarine containers, different sizes, measure my stuff in there and mark it with a marker. Doesn't cost anything they do make small measuring cups, comes in a set of 4 or 5. Take the one closest to the amount and use the marker. You'll get an eye for what is useful with horses with time
Haha she hasn't gone on strike since I added the cough free she got over it though pretty quickly. I have to play around with the feed thingy too see how much she needs. Our Walmart here doesn't have a lot for measuring cups. Just one small one but it was glass and I'm not bringing glass to the barn. But plastic shot glasses are 1 ounce lol. Posted via Mobile Device
Why are you blanketing her? You upset her ability to fluff up to stay warm or lay the hair flat to cool down. Can you run out and remove the blanket when the sun shines as she's cooking under it or do you just let her overheat? How's the water situation. Is she getting enough? Are the others keeping her away as there's always one that will dominate the trough. If a horse doesn't drink within a small time frame then it often won't.
She's blanketed at night. It comes off during the day. Her hair is not flat it's really fluffy. She is in the paddock with submissive horses. No one blocks the water. She used to be paddocked alone and she would eat a max of 4-5 flakes per feeding. Which is roughly 15 lb.
I actually think she needs to be blanketed during the day. When I get there in the afternoon she is pissed because she's cold out in the sun. This horse is a princess and I have no problem spoiling her after the rough life she has had. But blankets are checked twice a day to make sure she's not too hot and to make sure nothing is broken.
