Poppy, thank you for sticking up for me when I didnt have a chance to get back on here. Spent most of yesterday in the hospital.
To answer questions I have since increased a few things since the last time I posted about Queen needing to gain weight. I am feeding her about 4 lbs of grain a day, I have added SmartPak Gleam and Gain to her diet (feeding as recommended for gaining weight), about a pound (dry weight) of beet pulp that gets soaked, close to 4 pounds of alfalfa cubes (dry weight) that also gets soaked, and all the fresh grass hay she can stand. All of this is being split between 2 meals, except the hay of course. She has access to hay through her slow feeder all day/night. I had a vet score her at a 3/9, he recommended the alfalfa. I have talked to some of the other boarders where I am at on how to get her to gain weight. I am working on it, and I think I finally have a feed regimen worked out that will help her out. Once the heat breaks, or I have the baby, I will work on muscle/toning as I know that will help her as well.
Thank you everyone for your imput, I do appreciate it.
