i made a slow feeder for my mare because she can consume 10lbs of hay in 5 min (no joke i timed her, she hovers it up like it was never there). well the other boarder "felt bad" for her because she was fighting with the slow feeder. so she fed my horse , who has only ever had bermuda and alfalfa for the past 7 years, a big flake of timothy hay she brought with her from NEW YORK!!! umm the hay is WAY different then az hay, so that could have been colic. and my mare choked on grass a year later so apparently she could have choked on the grass/timothy too.
people keep wanting to give my mare apples, carrots and horse cookies and bits of alfalfa but i'm going to have to make a sign saying she is possibly IR (vet thinks she is just need a blood test) and cant have sugar at ALL.
