I really have nothing showing me any signs of EPSM with her. She seems quite healthy. I was thinking that in order to keep her healthy and prevent EPSM, that I need to have her on a high fat diet. Is this not the case?
I haven't had hay tested because there are so many variables....I board, and they get a nice quality hay (at least it looks and smells wonderful) from a local feed store. Not sure where it actually comes from and how often it changes etc.
So, since they are VERY easy keepers I only have them fed the grass hay. They also have pasture a few hours a day while I'm out there. I try to balance the diet with the ration balancer. They are doing very well from what I see physically and mentally. Should I leave things alone then?
