my sally eats like i have never seen a horse eat before!
she is forever getting into the rubbish bin and takin scraps out, she eats the dogs food, she eats lasagne, she loves mangoes and potato chips! im not sure how healthy all this is for her but she jsut helps herslef!
is this normal??
i feed her weightlifter (her ex owner told me it had the best nurtients etc for pregnant mares? )
she gets 3 good size scoops in the morning and 4 at night!

I have found some of my ponies love household food scraps and dog food and others won't go anywhere near it. All a matter of taste and how they were reared, they seek out the variety, doesn't mean she is lacking in anything nutritionally. Could also be a boredom thing too. As long as she isn't going to eat something she shouldn't (cigarette butts/chocolate) or cut herself on a tin can or something, I wouldn't worry too much.

I don't know about weightlifter being good for broodmares as it is formulated for underweight horses that you want to put on weight quickly, I would think any of the broodmare mixes would be much better because you know they are formulated for that exact purpose. You don't want to put too much weight on an in-foal broodmare as they can have birthing problems, but you do want your mares on an "upward plane of nutrition" when you are trying to get them in foal as it helps their fertility.

oh thanks for that!

Weightlifter is what the previous owners wanted me to put her on? ok well will be asking about broodmare foods when i get her next bag! thanks for that, dont want to be feeding her the wrong thing!

she helped herself to a box of mangoes today! they were even put up where he thought would be high enough lol but she got into them all! he is not very happy with her at the moment opps lol

My horses used to raid my compost heap for vegetable scraps...come still do and I have to re-rake all the manure back into it afterwards! lol

Weightlifter is definitely not a good good choice for a broodmare...I too was told to feed a horse that when I purchased a mare. Some people are well meaning but very miss informed. Also from memory it sounds like you are feeding way more than needed so you may need to read the dosage amount. I could be wrong though as it has been a few years since I used it.
