I will get hay tested - finding an extension that I can borrow a hay borer so I can get the proper samples of our hay 

You mentioned on my other horse Oliver (see link below ) that he should be put on Prascend in addition now even though not showing PPID in bloodwork  - would that benefit mya or not in this case ? And why him and not her - the insulin or glucose level ? 

He is doing better on metformin since Thurs the pounding digital pulse has stopped .


Thank you so very much

Lori,

Magnesium is not magic. No supplement is. Get your hay analysis in place ASAP for minerals.

Rinse BP again after you soak because surface iron and molasses traces may not have been fully removed. You want clear rinse water.

Yes, Jiaogulan could help her greatly but she has to be off bute first and have a good trim in place plus a good trim interval established because it will make her feet grow faster.

The cresty neck is caused by insulin resistance, not PPID.
