So just the past month or so I've noticed my mare getting slightly chubby (crease down the back, harder to feel ribs). It's been so miserable here (110° and up) so she's barely gotten any exercise. I ride for maybe 20-30 minutes (mostly trotting work) 3-4 times a week. She's on 2 flakes of bermuda and 2 flakes of alfalfa a day. No supplements other than her psyllium the first 7 days of each month. Do you think her diet is ok? In the winter I'll start riding her at least twice as much as I do now to get us ready for shows so I'm guessing she'll take the weight off then. I know you can't really tell without actually seeing her, etc. but I was just hoping for some input. Thanks!
