We've been trying to AI a mare for some months.
The person doing such is well versed in mare
reproduction. She indicates that a problem may exist known in humans as Cushings Disease or
Cushings Syndrome. Has anyone any knowledge of this?

Yes, I have had 2 horses with cushings. Both older but it can happen in younger horses. It can be caused by a metobolic enbalance or a petuitory tumor. Some signs are not sheding out completely, course hair in spuratic spots, cresty neck, and their croup area that appears to be like a roach back. If you check for Cushing do a complete thyroid panel too. SOme people treat for one and not check the other they have very similar symptons. These horses with Cushing tend to founder easier too., There is meds to give them some can be rather expensive. There are some thyroid treatments that help, but I wouldn't rely on them totally. My last cushing horse I put down at 34 years old..We body clipped in spring and summer religiously, and kept him on the leaner side. I am not sure what affects it would have on the a/i situation. Hope this helps

I would suggest a senior feed like Acco's Equine Senior. They break down easily and are easier on the digestive tract. You will want to introduce the new feed at 1/3 per every 5 days until the change over is complete at 15 days.

You may want to top the feed off with a little bit of syrup if she is not showing interest. Corn is not the best choice for her, so all the better that she refuses to eat it.

Ponies do not really need a reason to founder, they are very prone to do so. So be very careful about extreme changes done quickly.

Has she had her teeth floated recently? This would be another thing that could help her regain her conditioning.
