I would get a vet out to check your horse out. They will make sure everything else is running ok and will give you a professional view on what it is you need to feed your horse.

Yeah we have him out every spring. Well, we just got a new one as our old one moved away..but she will be coming out next week. I was just wondering if anyone on here had any other ideas.

This is my 30+ toothless pony.

The first picture is when we got her Nov 12/06 and the second is June or July/07. She was seized in a SPCA raid on a "rescue"





She has four front bottom teeth and that's it.

She gets feed 100% soaked hay cubes and a low sugar/low starch pellet, (she has foundered in the past).

When we first got her we started her on cubes and beet pulp but due to the molasses in the beet pulp around here we had to cut that out.

The vet was just here this morning because I thought DB, my 26yr Arabian needed his teeth floated. His previous owner said it had been over 2 years since it was done and he started in the last 2-3 weeks dropping his feed and grass balls all over the place. He also looks like he is loosing weight. She said he doesn't have much teeth left to float. They are worn down to nothing. He is a little light but nothing to worry about. Her plan for feeding is the following
Senior Complete pellets twice a day
1 cup of corn oil or flax seed once a day [corn oil is better because the flax seed may not digest completely]
and as much pasture as he wants
She said I can also feed a cup of beet pulp a couple times a week

Just as everyone else has said... I feed my 30 yr old QH mare:

Soaked RICE bran mash (the textured, not the pelleted)
Soaked senior Triple Crown
Soaked alfalfa cubes (broken up until they are no longer cubes)

She gets fed these three things twice a day.


Cocoa - 32 yr old QH, Cherokee - 8 yr old TWH & Toby - 16 yr old QH
R.I.P. Cocoa 4/13/78 - 2/9/11
