I have been extremely lucky with my vet. He and his staff are really knowledgeable on nutrition and keep up with all the new supplements and feeds and how they affect the horses in their care.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Again, all I asked was if the poundage was too much per meal. Far from that I don't need your opinion on who I should call to ask.
Telling you who to call and ask is answering your question. Do not be too stubborn to realize that.

A vet can do a blood panel to see what the mare is short on. There may be nutrients her body is not utilizing correctly.

Maybe reread what you quoted I said... because you are missing it

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I asked you not to pigeon hole. Was I wrong?

Not all vet students take only one semester of nutrition.
