Dear Dr Dan,
I have a 16 year old easy keeper gelding .
He quickly becomes overweight on grazing. In addition to grazing he gets a very small amount of oats, with Just Add Oats, high Magnesium Red Cal, either Health Check or Joint Check, and coca soya. He has been on this feed regimen for a year and a half , yet he still gains weight very easily,
Right now he has been restricted to dry lot during the day with a very small amount of hay. Then I worry about ulcers, it is a constant trade off. Soon the horses ( my horse is boarded at a large facility) will be on dry lot with round bales 24/7. He gets fat then as well. He is consitantly exercised. What to do?
I would for sure add the Critical Care overweight formula. this will greatly help support the sugar fluctuations. Maybe even just a tub or two will suffice but long term is fine if needed. (it is pricey but there is truly nothing like it).
I would also highly consider our Weight Check oil. I have found that this crude unrfined GMO free oil is superior and giving better results than any. to maintian and lose weight 2 oz per day is suggested for an average size horse.
Thanks For Asking!
