    Terri - if the quality of pasture is good and they have enough access to it then it should not be an issue summer or possibly even in the winter. Clearly there are many mares and other horses who...

    FYI when I said inflammatory conditions are common in horses with cushings that was a typo!!! It should have said not UN-common as in they are common.

    I think this looks like a good plan. 4lbs of the Essential K is higher than they suggest for a horse at maintenance but I suspect the nutritionist wants to insure you horse gets more than it needs...

    Suzy - Liscar's horse is also thought to have cushings which is why it is on pergolide. This is an appropriate measure.
