My mares weight is under control so we are ok there. Which succeed product do you use? The retail version or vet formula?

I had to go to the website as when I started using Succeed (in May, 2012) they didn't have a veterinary formula - lollol
I still use the original version and that's $104 for a 30 day supply. I shudder to think what the veterinary version might cost
Do you have a net on her round bale? I'm pretty sure they make slow feed nets for round bales.
Even if she shares with another horse, it wouldn't hurt that horse, unless it's a really hard keeper or has teeth issues.
Plus I think they slow the waste down, too
Just a piece of insulin trivia that I am only repeating so you will know to watch.
When my second IR horse was diagnosed in 2010, I was whining this is my second horse and what am I doing wrong?
My vet commented he has a mare that's been on a dry lot for a couple years (I think he said three years, at that time) and he told me she STILL gets sore feet every single spring.
I asked him if she was getting fed something she shouldn't when he wasn't looking. He was insistent that he leaves strict orders as to how she is to be fed.
I wouldn't mention this if you had a gelding but it may be a quirky thing that might be associated with mares and spring time.
There also may be a perfectly logical feeding answer but nobody's telling him because they don't want fired (meaning feeding her wrong after all).
Keep a close eye for any subtle warning signs that make you think "no, she can't be, she's in a dry lot".
