Little Cloud's Wild Horse Diet

LITTLE CLOUD-joined our crew fall of 2018
Little Cloud
Little Cloud is our first male mini, and he is quite the character! Health wise his issues are pretty easy. He was very malnourished, being thought of as "fat" and was only being fed about 2lbs of grass hay a day and little else. He was very food aggressive (as nutritionally starved horses are) and even though his bones were not showing, he was what I consider very underfed. He is now eating at least 6lbs of hay a day, plus the following:
  • 2 cups soaked Orchard Grass Pellets
  • 1/4 cup Rice Bran pellets
  • 1/4 Cup Iron Horse
  • 2 TSP Joint Rebuilder PLUS (for stifle issues)
  • 2 TSP Sugar Down (always good for minis!)
  • 1 oz Back in Balance Minerals
Grazes with Misty
Little Cloud is a Red Roan, while Misty is a Grey. He is the funniest little guy, full of spunk and vinegar! He is also fully cart trained and will be having fun with the kids this summer! He also likes to run crazy with our black lab pup when let out of his stall and thinks he owns all the ladies. He is still feed aggressive, but after being malnourished for so long, that will take some time to recover.
