Even if you don't believe in evolution, it doesn't change how a horse's digestion system works.

Re wheat bran & 'poopers', because he had impaction once is not at all a good reason IMO, especially long term & not feeding anything to counter the excessive phosphorus or otherwise balance the diet. What's the bute for & how long has he been on it? As I don't know how many minis you have, I don't know how much hay he gets from 1-2 bales a day. If he doesn't need extra condition, there's a fair chance he doesn't need anything other than hay as his basic diet, although nutritional supplementation should be added.

Please don't be disrespectful just because you don't beleive it. I won't voice my thoughts about your beleifs, but you might cop it anyway if you are rude about others. Probably a good idea to leave your personal beleifs out of it anyway, as it's as irrelevant as your sex life to the subject.

As far as horse's digestion goes, just read up on it & pretend anything that says 'evolved' actually says 'created' & you should get the idea. As for different and conflicting opinions, yes, you'll get that wherever you go, on whatever subject... unless you only ask one narrow minded person. That's why I think it's so important for us horse owners to do our own homework & learn the principles yourself, so you aren't just going on blind faith & can better weigh up the advice you get & pros & cons of different approaches.
Tianimalz and Katze like this.

Not to get or keep the controversy going, I didn't get where you got the evolution issue from until I reread the previous posts. Also, not to spout my beliefs but I don't agree with evolution either, as a whole. I do believe that we and animals will adapt. That's the way I took it from the post about how the horse has evolved. So you can do as loosie suggested to use created or as I do with adapted.

Bute is for an old racing injury. I have 2 minis who might be separated from him because the mule is too fat. He does need extra condition hence the reason I feed him so much. He is a really really hard keeper. Probably doesn't help that he will be 18 in march

Horseychick94, have you ever thought about giving your horse some Pro-Biotics??. ( I sound like a broken record)..that stuff will help your horse get everything he needs from his feed, you said you give him something for his stomach to help with the damage from bute, If its not Pro-Biotics, you might want to try some..that stuff works wonders, your horses stomach will work like new and keep all the nutrients from his feed from just passing through, it will help him retain all the good stuff he needs to be a good weight, I have a TB X , and he is 17, and he gets 1 cup of BOSS, 1/2 Flax, and MSM, once a day, and he is at a great weight..Before Pro-Biotics, he needed alot more feed, also he has hay 24/7.... Good luck..
