Adjusting rations for stall rest
Yay, now that we have Cinny's feed PERFECT according to our vet, and his attitude, I have to change it again. Cinny is stall bound for the next 6 or so months with a suspensory ligament injury and I don't want him to get fat or stay wired.
Here is what he currently gets, this is with working about 2 hours 3-4 days a week. According to the vet his is in optimal condition and perfect weight.
AM 2 Flakes Prairie grass, 1/2 scoop Strategy Healthy Edge (it's not regular strategy), Smartpack with SmartBugOff (self explanatory), SmartGut Ultra (he has tummy issues), and SmartCalm (this helps as he tends to be low on magnesium which makes him go loopy).
PM 2 Flakes Prairie grass, 1/2 scoop Strategy Healthy Edge
My guess is to cut back his strategy even more to maybe 1/4 scoop, just enough to mix with his SmartPak and leave breakfast and dinner alone but then give him a flake or two for lunch since he has stomach issues.They don't feed lunch at my barn so I will have to go every day and do it myself.
I can't think of any other way to change it up, if you guys can think of something better let me know..I'm here for any advice I can get.
