My mare Tiara has always been a very easy keeper. One of those that she looked at food and could gain weight. During the last part of her pregnancy that changed, which didn't surprise me. However, after she lost the foal she never reverted back to being as easy of a keeper.

Is this normal? Or is it something I should be concerned about?

It hasn't been like a huge change, but before her pregnancy she maintained weight with just Bermuda hay. Since then I've been having to feed her 2 lbs of timothy pellets and 4 oz of rice bran to maintain her at a good weight. Which as I said, isn't really like I'm having to pour feed to her, but it is just so strange to me.

She was on anti-biotics after she lost the foal. I did have her on a probiotic because of that, but it didn't seem to do anything. She also got bit in the face by a black widow during the same time. So I don't know if any of those played a role in this, or if it is just because of the hormones and such of pregnancy. Ideas?

Thanks!

I wonder if you should get some blood work drawn up on her to make sure everything is normal? Just a thought...

I've thought of that. Was just hoping someone had dealt with this before so I didn't have to go that route. I haven't found a vet I really like and trust since my old one sold his practice.

Other than that, I really don't know. I hope someone here can help you.
