How much is too much sugar for a PSSM horse?
Ice has decided his supplement isn't tasty any more. He's sifting it out of pellets an leaving it in feed pan.
Wetting feed isn't an option he won't touch it. I've been using molasses an 1/8 of a cup twice a day. He eats up supplement no issue. Supplement isn't optional it's a have to have. Has vit E 2000IU and added fat to total 40 percent. Plus added magnesium.
The sugar in an 1/8 cup of molasses is 26.8 grams. He gets this twice a day have to split serving of supp into two feeds. Less molasses doesn't get all the powder to stick to pellets.
Have tried other sweeteners that are no sugar,he only eats it for a few days. Then back to not eating supplement.
He's on a low sugar/ starch diet, tested hay below 10 percent sugar/starch. Using Timothy pellets and Timothy/Alfalfa cubes for his feed. He's not fat he's on thin lean side has gained very little weight.
He has free feed hay never out plus cubes/pellets twice a day. 2 pounds pellets 2 pounds cubes twice a day.
Recent pic. Vet gave me the ok to ride him at walk to exercise him. Footing isn't great so only walking is safe.
Out riding my horse.
