My mare ties up horribly and we now have it under control, but she is on a grass hay diet with high fat. Ive been instructed by my vet to feed her a high fat supplement. Ive been using Safechoice Perform and flax seed oil. She doesnt seem to be getting as much fat as id like and she just needs some more weight put on. Id really like to find something to add the weight without adding more energy. She is a hot horse anyway and Id like to not feed her jet fuel on top of it. Any suggestions would be helpful. I have tried corn oil in the past with other horses and I did not notice a difference. I have also fed rice bran too and I like that it adds weight, but it makes them hot. Any suggestions?
I'm a big fan of oil, since it's 100% fat and really cheap, calorie for calorie. How has it not worked for you in the past? What oil, and how much have you fed? I'd likely give it another shot were I in your shoes
