Help feeding the older horse
I have a 34 year old pony with Cushings and dental issues. Teeth were floated 6 months ago, Vet said last time. He is missing teeth.
He is quidding.
Afraid of him choking so I have been feeding, beet pulp, timothy pellets, timothy cubes soaked. Also found a great chopped hay product by Green Meadows, called Equal Balance. Costly at 25.00 a bag and maybe last a week/10 days.
So I bought a leaf shredder thinking I could shred my remaining hay so he could eat that also. It is dusty so what could you recommend to cut the dust. Won't eat if wet! Thought I could try some oil. Rice Bran or Flax seed oil?
He is on Prascend, Equioxx, hoof supplements, Smart flex Senior pellets. Of course have to watch the starch.
Been maintaining his weight throughout the winter.
