Obviously, the best thing to do is get a better quality hay into her diet, or better pasture, but I completely understand how that is probably impossible unless you move her someplace else.
Is she on a regular deworming schedule and her teeth are in good shape?
That's ironic, because the other month I finally weaned her off 4lbs of soaked beet pulp/day! (I feed that in winter b/c it makes me feel better when she has a hot mash!!)
She was on Stablized rice bran this winter, which was wonderful, but the feed stores suddenly stopped carrying it. ):
As for the hay; I really wish they would get better hay. The owner doesnt (or so I assume) like to pay a lot for the hay, as they feed it to their goats as well.
Her teeth are good, and she is on a rotaional de-worming schedule currently.
