Re: Approved IR feeds list

Hi Beverly,

>Any thoughts Lorna? 

If you haven't tried this, I would give her half of her usual meal. I think I've mentioned this before.
It sounds counter-intuitive but I have first-hand experience with a horse for whom this worked.
It can also work with people,as I'm sure you know.

See if she cleans it up, or if she leaves half, or at least some amount.

Compare the amount she leaves when she gets only half at first sitting,and see what you conclude.
I don't mean to feed *just* half for that meal,period.
I mean offer her half first,see what she does,*then* offer her (fresh bowl) the other half.You can save whatever she left on first serving ,add it to what she may leave on second serving,and compare to how much she leaves when fed the undivided meal.
Should tell you something.

If she doesn't like a meal more than 2 hours old is it because it gets cold? Rhetorical question.
If so, try adding some warm water to it just before serving.
