Today I weighed my horses feed because I was curious how much feed she was now. I was Surprised. My Horse is a 30 thoroughbred/appy, with cushings disease. She was severely underweight coming out of last winter due to many factors that have now been taken care of. She is now 950lbs when the vet came out last week, also surprised that that. She is turned out 24/7 on a 1 acre dirt paddock with my Gelding, there is little to no grass. She also can not chew hay anymore. She gets about
She is fed twice a day, but the food last her 4-5 hours.
25.5 lbs of hay stretcher wetted aday.
2.6 lbs of Sentinel Pro. LS wetted aday
4 lbs of Dynasty XT Pro wetted aday.
That a grand total of 32 lbs a day of food, which seems like a lot.
Since she's up to weight I was debating if I should substitute some of the grain for Beet Pulp.
This is my fist older horse so just looking for suggestions on what others have done with older horses.
