Remission is for horse who are founder prone contain Mg which has helped my mare lose the last bit of her weight she needed to lose

By balancing the nutrition it will help to balance the system making it more effiecent helping to lose weight if needed ..

I would not give her a performance horse feed at all requires too much to get the needed nutrition and they are normally grain based which this horse does not need

The work load should be increased slowly and steadily watching how the horse is recovering at all times

Thanks Peggysue.
I was reading a magazine and found an article about insulin-resistant horses, or peripheral cushings sydrome. Aka, Equine Metabolic Syndrome.
It seems like it could be a possibility that she has this, or at least she is on the right track to getting it !! :S

I'm going to do some more research. But for now, the grazing muzzle is what she's going to use. If anyone knows anything about EMS^^ , please share :)

Oh wow really?
Please spill any info or advice you have? Symptoms or signs?
Any treatments ?
I've found out quite a bit just from reading. But knowing first hand, you could probably give me some more information.

Sassy gets NO green stuff... hay only and ration balancer with her remission and MSM

I keep a close eye on her feet and exercise her as much as I can.

Sassy's main sign was cresty neck, no wither and sore feet.
