Need Help Coming Up With A Feed Plan
I'm needing some pretty big help with my mare. When he got her, she was a little tubby and undermuscled. I managed to get her back in shape and get all of her muscle back, but at the same time she lost a lot of weight in her tummy area and is ribby.
Sooo...I need help coming up with a feed plan, and basically choosing a feed for her. She cannot go on sweet feed because she colics on it, so I've basically been feeding her some cheap feed from our local Co-Op (like a farmer's market) which I know is bad, but I don't know what to feed her.
If you could help me develop a feed plan for her, that would be great. Or maybe I'm missing some key vitamin or some little detail? My other horse is a very easy keeper, but this mare is not. You should know that she has been wormed recently, so that is not the reason.
I'm not really sure what all details are needed, so I'll just throw out a bunch. hah.
She is exercised about an hour a day, except for the past two weeks she's been out due to the fact that she ran through a fence and hurt her leg. She has one more week of recovery and then I'll get her back into work. Usually work involves some pretty streneous work like long trotting, barrel practice, basic reining stuff, etc.
She does not have hay because her pasture is verrryyy green, and I don't want to overdue it.
She is out 24/7 (excluding extreme weather conditions of course).
She is on MSM and there is a salt block in the pasture.
Uhmm...anything else you need to know? If anyone could help point me in the right direction as far as what I need to be feeding her that would great.
