Can you clarify re. donkey low insulin?
You said "when stressed by anything that decreases their eating to below their calorie requirement, they mobilize fat.."
But he eats well (not too well) so I'm unclear about "underfeeding" him as the cause of high fats, high triglycerides and therefore IR.
If he is eating enough, what else could cause the low insulin in a well, but heavy neck roll donkey?
He's 350 pounds and gets 4 pounds hay. (Now starting ODTB and BP). Always seems a little overweight to me.
Thanks very much,
