OKay so i was just wondering how much poundage per meal is ok.

ginger is getting
6lbs triple crown senior
6lbs beet pulp
Per DAY. split in two feedings (3lbs each per meal).

Is that too much? Thats 6 lbs per feeding . Should it be broken into 3 meals or is it okay in the two meals ?

thanks!

I have been extremely lucky with my vet. He and his staff are really knowledgeable on nutrition and keep up with all the new supplements and feeds and how they affect the horses in their care.

No i have not asked my vet... and i have a nutrisionist in the area i can call but its not cheap..

again, all i asked was if the poundage was too much per meal. far from that i dont need your opinion on who i should call to ask.
Telling you who to call and ask is answering your question. Do not be too stubborn to realize that.

Please do not pigeon hole all DVM's. Our practice has a doctor that specializes in pretty much everything. If they don't know, the university is just a phone call or e-mail away.

A vet can do a blood panel to see what the mare is short on. There may be nutrients her body is not utilizing correctly.

maybe reread what you quoted I said... because you are missing it

vets do ONE semester of general nutrition. so unless your vet has taken extra EQUINE nutrition it is a wasted vet trip

MLS there is what I said... so what are you missing I highlighted and bolded it for you to see :?
