my adorable quarter pony
These are pics of my baby girl my bf got me after i decided I was finally ready for a new horse after my mares passing in sep. 2012
first day home:
Meeting one of the dogs:
so cute! and so happy for you!!
Its hard to tell with that fluffy coat but I think she does look quite lean and I wouldn't work her too hard until she's put weight back on
I'm also now unclear about the amount of hay - if all she has is 4 flakes and that keeps her with hay in front of her all day she might not be eating properly - worth getting her teeth checked
If your round pen is sand I would put the hay in nets with rubber mats underneath them to reduce risks of her ingesting sand when she eats the hay
Something like Triple Crown Safe Starch forage might work well for her if you can't provide extra hay - damp it down and feed from a large tub
I'm also confused - you need to add the amplify to some other feed - and if you're not feeding anything else than you'd do better to buy a quality complete feed than to spend money on a supplement
She's really pretty :). Congratulations.
Maybe she'll be fine as she was if she was putting weight on - and if you're working her even lightly that will burn up some calories that she would otherwise be using for weight gain so it will slow down the process
- so you're adding the amplify to whatever it is that you feed her then?
She's a cutey and you got some groovy lookin' fencing!
Its costing you about $40 for 32lb - a 50lb bag of complete horse feed that has the same things in it as Amplify plus vitamins, minerals & other foodstuff would only cost you around $20
Not only did the vet say to feed it straight, but so do the instructions on the bag... It was also a vet recommendation, therefore, i think i will stick with it rather than switching just because something is "cheaper". My thought is that generally things are cheaper for a reason. But thank you for your input.
