| || | New mare not eating?
I recently brought home my new mare yesterday. She is on a different feed than she was on (Cadence Ultra by Buckeye). She is now on beet pulp, alfalfa cubes, plain oats and she also gets some canola oil. I know it's a drastic switch to her diet, but I have the food portioned out to introduce her. However, she isn't eating.. She'll touch a little bit of it, and then turn up her nose. I'm not sure if it's because she's in a new environment and has possible nerves? Or because she hasn't been turned out with the other horses yet, but still has view of them. Is it possible she just doesn't like her new feed? If anyone has experienced this, please post or comment!
