yes it does.. protein is what builds and supports muscle growth.. if she wants more then that she needs to ask a more detailed question. Lysine is the only KNOWN limitied amino acid in the horse's diet at this point

What feed do they need? One with a good amino acid profile and in a form the horse can access

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I thought you liked to give nutritional advice and I thought it was a legitimate question. Do you really feel the need to make fun of a legitimate question?

You still make no sense.

How was I nitpicking? (Not sure what nick picking is.)

I asked a question.


ETA - I just re-read the whole thread....Can you please point out my nitpicking to me? Because I am not seeing anything. I asked two questions, one included information you said you did not have time to find.

Is that some how nitpicking in your eyes?

Maybe you should get some sleep before you post things that are not true.
You said I was nitpicking you.

And I am some how at fault when some other posts in the same thread?

Proper nutrition is only part of it though
This is what you posted....
The last sentence leads one reading it to believe you were not giving all the information.

You could possibly have loads of great information (which I was honestly trying to learn from) but since you are so short fused about sharing it easily and clearly with out bunches of foot stomping and tantrum throwing it is hard to know.

Hopefully some of the people who actually like to share their horse nutrition knowledge will come post and answer Cori's questions and my question.

Thanks for trying though.

Always I do own you an apoligize I am tired and not thinking clearly r typing clearly and can't seem to get YOU to understand that you were not nitpicking she was speaking for you when saying I didn't answer. I answered and was waiting to see if you had more questions. I had a LONG weekend in the middle of too many people that were just CRAZY but that's another thread all together and waiting until I can think clearly to type it all out or try to anyway

Nutrition along with proper exercise is required to build the muscles

here let me reanswer and see if this makes more sene ...

Good quality forage with balancer nutrition limiting sugars and starches while providing plenty of good quality amino acids backed by proper exercise

Wihtout knowing what brands of feed she can get that is about the most I can do

Every TSC in my area carries Blue Seal. I feed this one: http://www.blueseal.com/equine/produ...Carb-Guard.pdf Low sugar, low starch, vit/min supplemented. So far been the best one I tried (besides Tribute, but it's not sold around here anymore). I don't like Purina because the only one similar to Carb Guard is very expensive. I absolutely hate Triple Crown (as I got very smelty bags couple times my horses refused to eat completely, I bet it was rotten or something).

I understand the exercise part of it. My pony has not done any real work for a while. I would like to make sure she has everything she needs nutritionally when she goes back to work.

I am almost out of my hay and I will be buying the hay I need to get me through until we cut this summer. So having hay tested is probably not going to happen.
She is a very easy keeper (less than 2lbs of feed per day, most hay stretcher pellets) and has free choice hay.

She spends lots of time licking her mineral salt block and does not touch her white salt block, so I think she does need something.
