Time to put my horse back on grain.
In the summer we take her off of it due to her getting enough pasture/hay and can maintain her weight fine.
Since its getting colder the grass is becoming non-existant. Last year I had her on 3 qts of hunter from blue seal.. two times a day.. which was maintaining her weight.. but I took her off it a little later then normal and I noticed it cause her coat to bleach out.. I know this because a couple weeks after I took her off it her normal coat color came right back and it wasn't her winter coat cause it was still in the 70s at the time.
She usually is in heavy work 4-5 times a week w/t/c .. jumping but because of my job its less.. 2-3 times a week but still when I work her its physcially demanding still.
Suggestions??? She isn't an extremely hard keeper but she doesn't quite qualify as an easy keep either..
