    Default TB mare not eating her Ultimate Finish

    Hi All,

    I reintroduced Ultimate Finish to my mares grain last week and she is not eating as well. She was on it a for about a year then went about 45 days without. I have not had any trouble with her eating this in the past.


    She has stopped eating her grain. I really like this supplement and would like to continue with it. I was thinking about picking up some molasses and mixing that in with her feed to try and entice her.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks Kristin

    Perhaps she has come off her grain due to a stomach/digestive upset condition such as ulcers. In most cases a horse with ulcers will come off their grain.

    Other than that have you noticed any change in color, smell or consistency?

    When I used to feed Ultimate Finish it would get rancid during the hot summer months. My horse would sometimes be picky if it didn't smell fresh. So, I would sometimes store it in the refrigerator during the hot months.
