I let my neighbor keep his standardbred in my pasture -- was recently discovered to be pregnant -- she started getting fat --- and got fatter - and last month she started carrying it lower ---- no one knows how pregnant she is since this wasn't exactly planned
I feed the horses (my 2 and his 1) --- they have 24/7 access to pasture, salt block, mineral block, and loose hay.
One of my horses is a 17 month old -- we drop buckets of feed in the pasture and they figure out who gets which bucket --- I don't currently have a way to seperate them out to feed each one something different (working on this)
So I have been mixing 1 bag of dumors 12% pleasure horse feed with 1 bag of nutrena's mare and foal
I feed them this mix twice a day using one of the 3 quart feed scoops
In the mornings I add 1 pack of gelatin to each bucket to help with their hooves (been really dry here lately) and if I know it is going to be in the mid-90's or hotter -- I will add a scoop of electrolytes
Am I missing something?
They all look healthy and a little bit thick -- pregnant mares ribs are barely showing, can't see them unless she moves or is stretched out
--- I am not paying her vet bills or anything -- just making sure she gets fed
