I have a coming 6-year old Thoroughbred mare who I've had for almost a year. Almost the whole time I've had her, I've had trouble keeping weight on her. I know that Thoroughbreds are generally more slender than other horse breeds, but she looks skinny to me.
I give her four quarts of Nutrena Safechoice and 1/2 cup of BOSS twice a day. She's also been on Dumor Weight Booster for about a month. I also started giving her free choice Bahia about a month ago (we put out a round bale for her).
I'd hoped that giving her free choice hay would've put some weight on her, but it really hasn't. I'm at a loss of what to do now. I don't have a picture of her right now, but I'll get one tomorrow. I can see her ribs, her backbone is very visible and her hips are sunken in. A lot of it may be because of muscle loss, as I haven't worked her basically all winter, but I know it's a weight thing too.
Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated (:
