Linda, I'm trying to keep an old Tennessee Walker nice and plump. He's 31 years old, has no back teeth, and a pretty hard keeper. I've got him on Safechoice Sr., rice bran, beet pulp, and veggie oil and he's doing great on it. I've never had to deal with an underweight mare in foal though so somebody else might have better advice there. She's definitely got a double whammy going for her there plus winter coming up. Poor girl. I do know you can't overfeed beetpulp so I would definitely add that to her feed, soaked, just for the extra calories and fiber. Can't wait to see her progress over the next few months. :)
