Wallaby, I did decide this morning that I was going to start feeding her timothy pellets instead of grain. Lower fat, less calories. Ill add a "multivitamin" to her diet since she wont be getting the fortified grain. She is already on a selenium/vitamin e supplement already.
All the hay we have is 2nd cutting. And with the drought weve had this year, it has very little grass to it, its mostly alfalfa. Therefore, she's getting very little. Poor thing! She'll tell you she's just starving!!!
DreamcatcherArabians, your pictures make me feel better. LMAO. Lovely horses you have! That chestnut arab is stunning.
And yes, she is a naturally well muscled girl. In those pictures, taken today, she hasnt been ridden in probably a year or more. Very infrequently. But she still looks good. Now its just getting her to diet some and tone those muscles.
I appreciate everyones input. I was getting worried.
And NewImage, ill make sure to give her plenty of food when she foals. I plan to give her Nutrena Mare and Foal grain, shell have her own round bale. Lol. Only 240ish more days. *sigh*
