Soo I am currently leasing an 11 year old overo paint mare. She is a bit overweight as she sat for about a year. The owner was feeding her one flake of compressed timothy every other day and she said to continue this. We have so far but is this okay? She throws a fit whenever the other horse gets fed. Other horse on the property is Rosie an 18 year old TB mare that is hard to keep weight on so is fed 4 flakes of hay a day along with beet pulp and senior horse feed. So that's alot of food that Angel (paint) has to see go by.
Anyways is one flake every other day bad? I feel like it's not enough. But Angel is a chunky monkey....Any advice?
Here is a picture of her:
