My filly just turned a year old today.
I'm wondering if I should switch her feed or what would be the best for her...
Twista is 1 year old, stands 14.1hh, 1/2 Thoroughbred X QH/Arab(we think). She has always been a little bit tall/big for her age, I've had 2 vets tell me they think she is growing to fast and the one suggested I put her on a joint supplement with MSM, Glucosamine, and something else. So I did.
This winter she will be pastured with my Thoroughbred mare (not mom), and will be getting hay that is about 25% Alfalfa and the rest grass, grain morning/night.
She is currently getting 2 scoops morning and night. 1 scoop= 2 cups, she gets 1 scoop of 14% Sweetfeed from a local mill, and then 1 scoop of Nutrena Performance Safechoice.
Opinions with feeding her and supplements?
Some pics make her look fat, others make her look thin.
Nix the sweet feed for sure! Add an oil to the Safechoice to boost the fatty acids, something like DAC Oil. She has enough protein as it is, which may be contributing to her excessive growth. Omega oils will help her joints.
