>Why does pain require a horse to be fed 2 x regular feed to maintain condition? 

Pain does not necessarily require a horse to be fed 2X regular feed amounts.

When my horses sloughed all their hooves, I was feeding one of them ~ 6X his regular feed amounts. And he still lost about ~300 pounds.

I know I didn't answer your question. Just wanted to say that it depends.
