My 11 year old mare, Sophie, has always had quite the gas. I've had her for 4 years, and I can always remember her being very gassy no matter what her diet is. She isn't on any supplements and isn't given any feed. She has access to a pasture 24/7 and is fed hay in the winter. She tends to be more gassy when she is nervous, but I'm assuming that's normal (right?). Even while in the pasture she lets out long farts lasting for 3 seconds +. About every 5-10 minutes. Her poop is normal, and she doesn't give any signs of colic. She's been checked out by a vet and they said nothing about it (although it was just a checkup-I didn't ask about the gas). Does anyone know what could be happening with her or is this normal? I'll give more health details below.
Foaled?: Yes (for sure more than once, unknown at what ages)
Diet: Pasture grass (access to salt block and water)
Any help would be Greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
