Thin Horse Progress Thread? Suggestions
Okay, out of 16 horses the only ones that get feed are the 6 mares and my personal gelding has dropped weight and it is killing me, they all dropped a few over the winter but he got ribby. Full time pasture and round bales, the freshest water you can get, actually people come and jug water that comes from the spring that feeds our waterers and lakes. Wormed regularly, teeth floated, no access to Triple Crown feeds or anything that you can't get from Tractor Supply, we've got a small feed store they sell a oat blend with alfalfa pellets but has no nutritional values on it so I'm weary of even considering it. I started him on a mix of Omolene 200 ( I think.. the red bag that's says performance on it), and Safechoice, but as per other members recommendations I will be moving to Life Design Senior. He gets a cup of Dumor Ultra Shine, Manna Pro Sho-Glo (mineral supplement), and half a cup of Canola Oil. I do not have weights of feed I will try to get them tomorrow.
Is there anything I can do differently to build him up faster. His mane growth is unreal, I swear it's grown almost an inch in a month. I will post a picture of him in next post.
Another huge question, I'm only able to feed once a day. Is it possible to feed him before I start riding the others, then feed him again 3 hours later when I'm done? Also I'm considering adding rice bran, what do y'all think?
Thanks in advance!
