How do you all deal with post foundered horses? I just got a mare that has foundered before. She’s on a dry lot with just grass hay (free choice).

Hi Abby 🙂

We have two mares who are post foundered, it really requires attention and special cares. Of course the main thing is to make sure they don't have access often to very rich grass, but they do need to have grass because totally removing grass from their alimentation is unhealthy, they need it and if they don't have it they will store everything they eat and it will be worse.

They work normally and we walk a lot with them on the road, we also go to a lake in order to make them swim.
