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 dont 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 dont know if its both the bran and copra or just one.....
