And this horse is a senior I think it's been established that she is well into her 20's.
Age sometimes is not a good indicator of needing senior care as I've seen 15 year olds that looked and acted 30, and I've seen 23 year olds still on the barrel circuit who acted 7.
This horse is a senior.

Thank you. I understand she is a senior, thus the examples of increasing protein in not only a 20 ( now 22 yr) old, BUT a horse IN THEIR UPPER THIRTY'S.
Yes, you want the fats, however that will only do so much. Protein builds muscle, muscle also keeps them warm, arthritis supplements at that age and history increase comfort, which promotes overall health & management. Posted via Mobile Device
