wont eat grass
 
since my mare started being a suragote mum she has stopped eating grass. is that normal?

hmmm im no expert but i would say no

does she put her head down to feed at all? maybe she is being over protective by now wanting to put her head down to feed. that is one of the most vulnerable positions for a horse

someone else may know better though :D

No it defintally doesnt sound normal... is she getting any other feed? And what kind of pasture to you have?

yeh shes feed suplements and a mix of alpha and sugerbeat.
she doesnt even put her head down the thing is shes not lossing weight or condition. its just your average grass in the pasture
