The broodmare body. No top line?
I need some help with my broodmare's body condition.
Mare had late foal we are about to wean her foal. Mare is a very mild cribber.
Mare looks to have a big belly, but NO top line. Same with her bum. She has covering over the sides of her bum, but not as much along the top.
I feed this mare. She get purina maternity twice a day. She gets premium hay outside, and a bale at night. She is also out on a 4 acre paddock all summer.
If she has hay in front of her always she does not crib on my water bucket, ruining them. It is cheaper to feed her hay, then a new water bucket everyday.
She has been wormed all throughout the year.
She should look fat. Her tummy looks fat, but nothing on top. Foal looks great. Is this lack of exercise and having the baby? Once baby is weaned, should it come back? What do you do to bring it back?
