    My baby WB was a slug at the walk too. He doesn't have EPSM. My EPSM horse wasn't a walk slug - he had trouble getting going at the trot.

    I supplement vitamin E because my horse has an absorption issue. He doesn't get as much out of what he eats as other horses do. So more needs to go in so that he can get what he needs out of it.

    The new BO is already slow feeding. There really isn't much difference between a slow feed box and a small hole net - at least not from the horse's perspective. So that makes nets a non-issue, and...

    I don't think you are in the wrong either.
