My surrogate horse, Cassanova, is a 31 year old Morgan with Cushings. He is not insulin resistant and is on Prascend for the cushings. He also is sensitive to colic.
Recently, he had some dental work done after we discovered he was dropping a lot of feed and having difficulty chewing. The dentist said that he should be switched to a bran mash instead of grain because his teeth are quite small now and there isn’t much they can do other than fix the sharp edges.
Currently, Cassanova is on Peanut Hay and Impact Grain. I’ve done some research and don’t think that having him on a twice daily bran mash is good for him.
I’m looking for help on what to feed him in replacement of grain that will provide energy as well as keep the weight on him. Also, I am wondering if soaking his peanut hay would be enough, or should I get chopped hay, or simply change that as well? Should he also be on a hay stretcher? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
