Char's diet: need advice.
Char is between 20-25 years old, she just had a filly on the 22nd (I got her in January and no one suspected she was preg, previous owners family didn't tell the ranch that rescued her it was a possibility.)
She was ridiculously skinny to begin with, gigantic shark fin and ribs all over. Now that she's had the filly her hips are protruding even more and her spine is more visible. The stable owners advised me to get her on a high fat diet to help her pack more weight on. Right now she's getting:
1.5 scoop senior pellets
1 scoop thoroughbreed pellets
1 scoop mare and foal pellets
1 scoop mixed grains
I think she said they give Char this 2-3 times a day. Have any of you worked with emaciated mares? PLEASE make suggestions! I am very new to horse ownership and horses in general. I want to get (and keep) both of my girls healthy.
