When I first got my now mare (then a filly), I had this problem (not runny, just along the lines of mushy). She came off of grass hay and pasture. Just to rule out any probiotic problem, I got probios (sp). It made a small diff, but did not stop it. Then, I noticed that the cutting mattered. If the hay were a good stem and leaf mix, the trouble subsided....to much leaf (protien), and it reappeared on some level. I also fed her just laken light for a couple of days to "test" the diet, it stopped it. The problem vastly improved as she matured.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
