Stocking Up - Change of Feed (Bran - Copra)
I have recently changed my horses feed to bran and copra to help put on weight as recommended by another horse owner where my horse is kept. 2 days after changing his feet he started stocking up, I would go out to where he is kept and all four hocks would be swollen and slightly warm to touch.
I have googled it a little and have found this can sometimes be due to too much protein. I don't know wether the bran or the copra is the culprit though......has anyone had a similar experience? Any comments would be much appreciated!!!! Thanks a bunch
P.s. I have been riding to get them down....just walking...however I would prefer to get rid of the problem from where it started...and I am changing his feed...i just don't know if its both the bran and copra or just one.....
