Remove the barley oats.

She is on a sugar/starch high ... remove the barley/oats and replace with beet pulp or alfalfa pellets close to same calories and lower hot energy. You also need a good source of nutrition either a good vitamin/mineral supplement or a ration balancer.

Free choice hay is a great way to add weight as well

You could also consider using an equine rice bran. It is 22% fat and provides cool energy.

Equi-Jewel main

Once the feed change would be made, don't feed any more than the recommended amount on the bag, unless you call the manufacturer.

I started out feeding rice bran to my insulin resistant horse because the I-R made him lose weight. I put my other three on it to keep my life simple and discovered they are all much more laid back and peaceful.

My I-R horse is has been stabile for three years and maintains his weight on 3/4 cup of rice bran daily, along with high quality grass hay and other supplements

If you want to try rice bran and can't get Equi-Jewel in your area, just be sure it is for horses and is stabilized & calcium fortified.

Stabilized so it won't turn rancid; calcium fortified to keep the calcium:phosphorous ratio where it needs to be in the horse

As has already been stated, you would need a good quality vit/min supplement.

Hope this helps
