    Feeding Remission year-round?

    Just to be on the safe side, I figured I should ask if Remission is something a horse can become immune to/have not work as well over time...

    I assume not but I wouldn't want to assume wrong.

    Basically, I've had Lacey on Remission since August-ish and it's been wonderful. Her weight has been more stable [about a perfect 4-4.5 on the H-scale] than I've ever seen [usually she's obese-obese in the summer, in the winter seems to fluctuate on a weekly basis between fat-ish and a little thin] and I'm just all around really pleased. Her neck sill has a small crest but that's ok, I kinda like the way it looks.

    Anyway, now that we're almost to the middle of winter here, I'm not sure if I should take her off the Remission in order to preserve it's effect for when the grass starts growing again..or can I just keep feeding it?

    She is getting the full dose just because so far I haven't seen anything but good things with that dose [why mess with a good thing and all that]...but I could decrease the dosage as well.

    Thanks!

    I don't see why you can't feed remission year round its mostly magnesium which all horses need in their deit any way.

    Magnesium I'm pretty sure is the miracle cure. I plan on keeping Lizzy on her magnesium supplement forever. I'm pretty sure Remission can be fed year round.

    I feed my mare Remission year round. She is currently on the 1/2 oz dose for now but if she looks like she may be putting on weight from grass (she has a grazing muzzle) I up her dose to 1 oz, but she hasn't needed me to do that in over a year. I really do like the product. It works so well and you get a ton for not a lot of money.

    Same here, year round. In general, an overdose in magnesium would make itself known by loose stools. As long as everything is normal, the portion is needed.
