I'm finding equine nutrition a minefield and wonder if anyone can help! I purchased my horse last summer and he kept his weight really well until the last sudden batch of snow in March and he really dropped off. I was warned he would drop off come winter so I was pleased to get him this far looking good. I had hoped (and still am!) as the weather improves he would pick up again but I think he need something extra. However he is extremely food sensitive. For example I gave him really good quality hay and it sent him absolutely crazy and unrideable - even when soaked! He is now out 24/7 and gets two meals a day of Hifi Molasses Free, Spillers Hi Fibre nuggets, farriers formula, gut balancer and a vit E/ selenium supplement as he has a mild shiver. We have plenty of grass and he'll pick at a haynet when I bring him in to groom/ ride but isn't that fussed. He obviously needs a low sugar/ starch diet due to the Shiver. I can't work out what was in the good quality hay that sent him so crazy? Possibly the protein? He is very happy in himself and doesn't need any more energy for ridden work. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what to try feed wise? Or is there an independent person who could advise me as obviously every feed company wants to sell their own products. I've done tonnes of research but just feel like i'm going round in circles! Many thanks from one confused horse owner!
