RE: What should I feed my fairly lazy/spooky horse?
Is he lazy? thats what they all said about mine.
He was on too much sugary stuff. similar to Insulin resist. look it up.
I cut out all treats, carrots, apples, feeds, haylage, nuts, and all the rest of the junk he was on when we got him. Dont do it too fast.
I introduced him to top speck & within two months he was awake eyes bright etc I could not believe it.
I also had the vet xray him and Hocks had Bone Spavin in them. he was treated for this and is ok now.
He eats Hay, thats it now.
He spooks more if he doesnt get out often. just reasure and he is fine. the trick is to know befor he does when he is going to spook and start the reasuring.
this may or may not be of use to you?
