So I recently (almost a year ago) bought a pregnant Morgan mare. When I got her someone told me not to feed her sweet feed(that's what one of our QH eats) that too much of the sugar and something else in it was dangerous for her because of her breed. Since I knew nothing about the breed I started her on Nutrena's Safe choice Special Care feed as recommended from one of the guys at the feed store. She was previously on a all stock feed so her feed didn't change too much. I don't have any problem keeping her on this feed, but now I am wondering what weight builders and treats are safe for her? Her baby which is a QH/Morgan also eats the same feed. After she weaned her colt she had lost some weight over the last few weeks and I would like to give her some weight builder to get her back up to a healthy weight. Also I would like to give her a treat every once in a while. Right now she is fine with carrots(her favourite) but I want to know what I can and can't feed her. I have heard many different things so I am not sure which is true when it comes to her diet. She is about four years old. She isn't on free choice hay at the moment because I am about to swap her to a new pasture but as soon as I do that she will be back on a whole(huge)bale of hay(free choice). If you guys have any info or advice on the Morgan horse breed I would greatly appreciate it!
