Misty's Wild Horse Diet

Misty came to us two months after Grace arrived (June 2018).

She was unwanted by a lady I sold a saddle to and came to join our herd. She foundered in the past and was still on pasture and is showing some rotation in one foot. Her front feet still curl up on the ends but the grow out is nice and straight. By summer 2019 we should have her feet all straightened out!
Misty was on a diet of:
  • 2 cups soaked Orchard Pellets
  • 1/4 cup Rice Bran Pellets
  • 1/4 Cup Iron Horse
  • 2 tsp Sugar Down
  • 2 TSP Joint Rebuilder PLUS
  • 1/2 oz Back in Balance Minerals
Her coat is nice and soft now, she has lost a bit of weight (needed) and her very foundered horse cresty neck is much reduced. She is on mainly low protein/low sugar hay like the rest but is allowed to graze on occasion. Her boyfriend, Little Cloud keeps her moving while they are outside and has so far had no issues from limited grazing as the Sugar Down and healthy oils helps regulate insulin levels.
UPDATE ON MISTY August 30, 2019. Misty passed away (possible heart attack) and will be greatly missed!
