I have three horses and all are in the same field. I do not feed them anything, just grass and they all three are very fat. However, I have noticed that one of the horses always seems to have a really dry mane and tail, her feet are always cracking and try to flatten out, and she is shedding slower than the other two. She is only 11 years old, whereas the other two are 7 and 21. Do you think that she could have a vitamin deficency, and if so what kind. She's been like this her whole life also if she gets too fat she gets knots on the side of her neck, and she doesn't like anyone to touch them. Which is the main reason why i stopped feeding them because they were getting too fat and i only fed them very little and once a day. I have been trying to slim them all down because i have heard about how being oeverweight can make one founder, and she definately doesn't have very good feet.

I feed a supplement called from Purina called Mare and Maintenence that is just a pelleted vitamin and mineral supplement. You only need to feed a pound a day per horse to keep them in good condition with a balanced ration in conjunction with your pasture. Here is a link to the website about this feed. http://horse.purinamills.com/products/mare_and_maintenance.asp

I use it for my easy keepers just to make sure they get all they need!
