    I was going to chime in about that - alfalfa is hard to come by in my area as well, but it is what is fed most commonly in CA (i.e. why UC Davis suggests it). Grass hay is fine!

    Thanks again guys. Im so happy shes looking so good. She has 40 acres of prime hay medow all to herself right now since i moved her out to my other land. ive cut back to once a day feedings. Me and this girl have been through hell, from rain rot, worms, ear mites, bad teeth, bad feet. Man im so glad all my effort was not in vain. I also forgot to mention that the horseodonist informed me that my horse is 15 not 8 as i was originally told.

    Don't worry, 15 is not old. Just means she's been around the block a few more times and is more sane and sensible! She's looking great, though-- you've done a really good job with her. By the way, do you know what breed she is? She looks like a thoroughbred to me. If you curl back her upper lip, is there possibly an old tattoo on the underside of her lip? If so, that means she raced and could help you identify who she is.

    It really sounds to me like she knows you "saved" her, and you've formed a strong bond. Keep up the good work and good luck!

    She looks awesome. What a pretty, soft, happy eye she has, too.

    What a beautiful and lucky mare! 15 years old still leaves her with plenty of wonderful years to enjoy with you - especially since you are clearly an observant and caring horse owner as shown by the pictures of her great improvement in condition.

    Im not sure on her breed. I was thinking quarter horse but you might be right her build does resemble a thoroughbred especiallu around her neck and her legs. Sorry i havent replied in a while guys but here is another pic of my girl took it yesterday. And yes that is me on her lol.
