    More details on the horse? Age, any arthritis issues, new or existing behavior, does he misbehave like this when you clean his feet, etc? Did you notice how high the farrier was holding the...

    Yep, and it was a good point to come up.

    The other issue with rice bran, because of the higher NSC, is its use for EPSM/PSSM horses. Some take it well due to the added fat. But others are too...

    NSC is indeed a concern for some horses.

    But just like any other nutrient, keep in mind the context of how much is being fed. 26% NSC when fed at, say, 1lb, is less than feeding 4lb of an 11% NSC...

    Agree gypsy - a horse doesn't have to be sedentary to benefit (greatly) from a good (!!) Sr feed

    14% protein is pretty high - it hardly gets above 16% even in a "performance" feed. They are also...

    The real JB, though a TB, was quite wide-bodied, including his shoulders. I don't use "wide bodied" lightly. 16.2, not long-backed, yet still an 80" blanket. In contract, my TB mare is 16.1,...

    TC Sr or the Legends Performance pelleted (not the textured) would be my places to start. I'd start with the TC first, but I know the Legend is a bit cheaper

    Did the farrier tell you anything about squirting betadine or something similar into that hole on a very regular basis to try to avoid it abscessing? If not - Fail on his part

    The best shot of not getting a gray foal is to not breed a gray :)

    But if you're starting with 1 gray parent, then assuming that parent is Gg there is no color that lessens the 50/50 shot of gray....

    Not all coconut oil is solid at room temperature. Fractionated coconut oil is liquid.

    Remember too that Cocosoya also has Vit E added. How much, I don't know. That might be part of what helps...

    Ahhh maybe it's auto correct when I see "encrusted" in all the places I do LOL I never thought it would be that.

    What's the history of his FECs? If they are regularly clean, it's unlikely he's...

    It's more about temperature than the month :)

    For maximum protection you should be waiting until temperatures are regularly above 45*, which is the low end of the temperatures when eggs will start...

    Does it really say that? If so, that's really not valid (anymore). May is pretty late for a Spring deworming in at least half the country, with March/April being more appropriate there.

    Encysted, not encrusted :)

    I'm not sure where you read/heard that Quest (Plus or regular) won't get the encysted strongyles :confused: It absolutely does. It's the moxidectin which kills them.

    Organic ingredients. That increases the price a lot, and add that it's one of the very few organic horse feeds, and it's a little niche.

    Peas as a protein source is expensive too, especially...

    The Premium brand wood (pine I assume) pellets I got from SS yesterday say they don't need to be wet down - yay! So I assume they are a softer pellet than others that need to be wet.

    Agree on the E/Se "balance"

    The only "balance" you need is enough Vit E to use the Se that's being ingested. For every mg ingested of Se, you need X IU of E (and I don't know that ratio) for all...

    *sob* seriously? How is they can't get any straw? What's the straw being used for instead?

    This sucks :(

    One can't (yet) equate sore feet with being in good weight, without knowing the makeup of the "bagged feeds". There are far more that are totally in appropriate for metabolic horses, than there are...

    Is there a reason you're using a ration balancer (the 1lb v/m supplement) + all that other stuff, instead of a low NSC regular fortified feed? You'd get more calories in the same weight of stuff fed.

    Hay is lacking Vit E (or any of significance), so yes, a horse on hay only really does needed added E if they aren't getting a concentrate that has probably 1000IU in it for the given serving size.

    It's a *starting* point. It's going to take at least a week to work up to that 6lb/day. And adding 8500 calories isn't insignificant.

    It may well not be enough, so she can add more, *after*...

    The oxide form of minerals is one of the *least* bioavailable forms. Your vet doesn't know that? :confused:

    Citrate is one of the most bioavailable.
