OK I have an older Quarter Horse mare around 22yr.
I went out to the boarding stable I am at and I had not been out there in about a month do to family problems, school trouble and the weather has just been horrible.
I get out there and I am deworming my arab gelding who is fine he is a good weight and gaining muscle do to training. I get out to my mare and from a distance I can tell something is not right I get up to her and her hip bones are sticking out and she is skinny. She is also bitten up by other horses. I take her out of the pen and into the barn give her the deworming treatment. Then I went right away to talk to the barn owner. She tells me that whenever she sees her she is always eating. I don't take that as an excuse, why did she not call me. This is not the first time this has happened to one of my horses. The last time it was blamed on a failed worming treatment which resulted in a miscarrage and eventually I had to have my horse put down after trying everything to save her. I need help on what kind of feeding regiment I should put her on to get the weight back on her fast.
I am moving her to a new pen on the property to stop fighting.
will be getting her teeth checked.
I am going to get a bag of senior feed.
