Feeding a TB Mare
We've recently decided to buy a 5 year old tb mare that we've been looking after for a while, she's not as hard a keeper as some, but she is naturally excitable when she's around other horses.
I was looking for some suggestions on any calmative supplements, or something that would take a little bit of fizz out of her so my Mum can eventually ride her.
At the moment she's on full turnout, being fed a large biscuit of lucerne hay nightly, 1kg of EasiResponse cubes, and a big scoop of oaten chaff.
She's coming back into work as we hadn't been paid agistment in 3 months, so while we were still feeding and looking after her, I wasn't wanting to put the time in on a horse that could be picked up at any time and us being left in debt
Thanks guys :)
Thinks her father has realised she will never outgrow horses for boys
