Hi everyone. I am fostering a horse that was/is at a rescue I volunteer at. She was very thin when they got her at the end of March this year. She has had her teeth floated and everything is good. She has no dropping of food when she eats.
She is currently on 3 quarts (I need to weigh this) of Safe Choice, 4 quarts Triple Crown Triple Crown Safe Starch Forage, 1/2 scoop of hoof supplement, 1 1/2 scoops Cool Calories 100, and she gets that each morning and night. She also gets about 7 pads of hay a day.
Now she has picked up weight since she came thank goodness, but I am thinking there might be better feed options out there. I added the Cool Calories 100 but I am looking for an alternative since there seems to be the powder in the bottom of her bowl a lot so it's getting wasted.
The owner of the rescue feeds her in the morning and I feed her every evening when I bring her in. I set up her a.m. And p.m. Feed in the evenings for the next day so I really need easier handling choices.
I was looking a the Safe Choice Senior Feed but it doesn't have but 1% more fat content than the original so not sure if that is worth a switch. I am thinking there might be a better feed to go with then adding the low starch forage an the Cool Calories.
The top photo is from when they first got her and the second one if from about 3 weeks ago and the third one is from yesterday.
