Background: We adopted a morgan mare and a paint mare from a man whose wife suddenly collapsed and died one day. She was the horse person in the relationship and therefore after her death they went without proper treatment.
We got them about a month after her passing. They were on about 2 acres of pasture with two individual stalls they ate in once a day. He was feeding 3 qrts nutrena pellets 12% and a flake each.
We had them vetted day 1, both had upper respiratory infections. We wormed them. And the vet checked their teeth and said they were fine. So heres where I want to hear an opinion.
The morgan is fine. She's 18 and is a overall healthy horse.
The paint is not fine. She is 9 and the vet said she needs about 200 lbs of weight.
Here is the paints feeding schedule.
1 1/2 qrts grain 14% twice a day
1 cup rice bran twice a day
About a cup of unmedicated hog feed (per the vets recomendation) once a day
A flake of hay at each meal
She is in pasture with the morgan on four acres.
I know weight takes time. I just want to do it the best way possible. We also bought some corn oil and may start putting it over her feed.
What do yall think of her new diet and adding corn oil
