If she is on sweet feed it could also be what is making her sweat. You are not supposed to use it in the summer months.

I want her to graze not stand by gate day and night.
Not possible to feed her where she stands as there is not enough room for other 2 horses and we need to get in and out of gate. She is fine eating her feed by the shed but I have to stand there whole time until she is done or she will walk away from it and continue to stand by gate....she is goofy

I do not feed sweet feed I feed alfalfa pellets and Purinia Equine 2 times a day. Wish she would just graze and eat hay like other horses she is always worried about something... Which is y some people think she is hard to put weight on as she is always worried and pacey maybe y someone abanded her in my pasture. She always acts as if she is going to miss something if she doesnt stand there.

Some horses are worriers, just like some dogs are worriers. It usually is because they are overly attached to people.

Wow it's like she is waiting for her original owner to come back or something. Weird. Give her time patience and love. Shell come around. My little Arab had had 12 different owners in 12 years and just at the point when I thought she was never going to bond with me and about to give up and start looking for another home for her, she bonded with me. The neighbors dog ran her through a barb wire fence and I had to take her out and dr her wound 2 times daily and I'd brush her and feed her and finally she started trusting me. Now I can do anything with her:) that took about 6 months of constantly reassuring her loving her and letting her know that she's fine everything going to be OK. Shell settle in... even now that I have these other horses she stays by them but not right in the heard she is last horse on the totem pole bottom in the pecking order. But she seems happy to have the other horses around. Good luck

i don't think she waiting for her old owners I think she likes to b with people and does not know how to b with other horses which is y I think she was stalled and not around other horses she does not forage at all unless I am with her. We are very bonded she rubs all over me and loves too b with me and follows me everywhere more like a dog than a horse. But I need her to put weight on and not sure how too do so. When I give her feed she sweats alot so am worried.

I would suggest a weight builder....there are many different kinds on the market.....but we use Cool Calories, it is the only weight supplement that worked on our emaciated OTTB.

But EVERY underweight horse needs to be on probiotics!!!!! I swear by probiotics. When we put our OTTB on them, he started plumping up really fast.....now he's a little too plump. Lol.

Probiotics come in many different brand names, like Probios, the most popular one. We use SmartDigest by Smart Pak.....

But your horse SERIOUSLY needs to be on probiotics. Try it, I can guarantee you won't be disappointed.

*off topic* could you please type in proper english I.e use whole sentences and words, and use punctuation, trying to read your paragraphs is making my eyes bleed.....

*back on topic* your horse hasn't bonded with you yet, and maybe she's feeling some sort of seperation anxiety from her previous "herd". Also, I agree with what everyone else noted about changing her hay to better quality and some sort of weight gainer for feed. I heard great things about probiotics as well. Good luck.
