    It's not that they are shedding more, it's that they have more to shed, as the Durasole allows/causes the sole to build up.

    But what melhorse said IS true. Many breeders - especially halter breeders - do wean at 3-4 months. Even 2 months! :eek: :no: It's awful. Just being inadvisable doesn't mean it's not done :(

    newhorse - yes, you had it right :) High Fe inhibits Cu and Zn uptake. High Fe soil means low Cu/Zn forage, for example, which is my case - bright red clay

    A 4yo who's already competing, and is now sore, I would put her out to pasture until the Spring. Maybe some light riding - for fun, not conditioning - a few times a week after 1-2 months of no work,...

    1/2 of SE is about useless in terms of nutrition. That's why we're saying change. Either use a good quality v/m supplement and a cup or 2 of alfalfa pellets as a carrier, or try a ration balancer...

    At 3 months he wouldn't have needed much deworming.

    He SHOULD have been dewormed at 8 weeks (some do 6, but that's iffy in terms of parasite maturation and being targeted), then at 12 (so...
