Dominique and Festival
Great job of getting your case history up. It can be a bit daunting at times.
One suggestion I have to make regarding his diet is to stop the rice bran oil until you know for sure that he’s not Insulin Resistant as well as it can exacerbate that condition. Flax seed oil or grounded flax/linseed is a suitable replacement.
I would also suggest that you get an Insulin & Glucose blood test done so you know exactly what you’re dealing with. Below is a link to the Australian files
If Festival just has PPID, then there maybe some leeway for pasture at some stage, but if he’s IR as well, then you’re management protocol will have to change. In the meantime, are you able to remove him off the pasture or make a dry lot for him?
I know it’s confusing and confronting, but we’re here to help you .Please feel free to ask any questions.
