Re: URGENT HELP NEEDED WITH DIET

Hi Ani,

It would greatly help all the volunteers if you could update your case history to indicate current weight/ideal weight and current diet for your mare (including amounts as well as what she's eating).  Do you have test results?  If so, can you add those as well?  

You can find a list of people who can help you balance your hay here: https://ecir.groups.io/g/main/files/6%20Diet%20Balancing/HAY%20BALANCING-1.pdf

The hay should be fine to feed unsoaked unless she gets sore on it.  Many horses need a lower ESC+starch number than our standard 10% recommendation.  Unless your Bermuda pellets have been tested they should be replaced with rinsed/soaked/rinsed beet pulp.  

Is there a reason you are not following the emergency diet outlined in your welcome letter?
