Sorry to ask again - but is she confirmed to have EPSM?
If not all that added fat might not be right for her if she's already an easy keeper
The diet is very similar to the one for IRS horses/ponies and I have a mare with that (confirmed), she is on diet aimed at low sugar/starch and higher fats to keep her body weight good as she actually struggles to maintain a healthy weight as she doesnt utilise sugar correctly
I feed Sentinel senior with added sugar beet, chop or hay stretcher pellets for extra bulk and just a standard amount of wheat germ oil added
I found the magnesium/chromium supplement Quiessence has helped her a lot. I believe Dr Valentine uses that too.
