Hi, Just curious, is your mare a Morgan (assuming by your user name?). If so, are you trying to minimize carbs? I have a Morgan mare who is a really easy keeper and am in that boat. I use grass hay pellets and LMF low-carb complete (along with some ground flax and I do add 1 cup wheat bran which could be a no-no which I'll have to avoid when she gets middle-aged). I also add 1-2 tbsp salt and some cinnamon and probiotics along with her California trace. I did introduce most every new component gradually. I actually also add water and mix to a little slurpy consistency as I learned from my old guys (now passed) that the more water you can get into them the better. She eats most of it all at once, but I sometimes add a little more LMF to it to encourage eating the last of it, although she will finish it off eventually anyway. Not sure if that helps but might be some thoughts..
Good Luck with your girl!
