I am so grateful for this group! So much great info.
When I got his xrays I asked the vet about the blood test and they didn’t think he had any symptoms so they advised against it.
I am trying to figure out how to get water to soak hay. We are remote, so it’s tricky.
the local feed store had a product called Step Right CR ProFibre crunch. It says it is made for horses with metabolic issues and promises lower than 10% starch/sugar. It says I can feed it as a replacement for a portion of their hay.
currently I am feeding Soaked and Rinsed beatpulp with salt and tumeric. A small portion of the original hay. A small portion of Timothy hay from down south. I can do some math and add in this profibre. I’m hoping this should be a good diet until I can source shipping for the compressed hay.
next big question. Advice for trimming?
I have taped a foam pad to his feet. My friend has boots, so by the end of today I should have those on him.
