By AAEP's Ask the Vet: Adjing My Draft Horse's Diet (Adjusting the diet of my draft horse)
This is so wholesome and naturally for a horse! Unfortunately, with a physical state of 6.5 to 7, after she has lost a lot of body mass this pasturage, she may have to carry a new item of "jewellery" before she comes out to graze this spring: a grassing basket. Believe me, that doesn't make you a terrible possessor and she won't despise you - my own horse carries a grass inguzzle from April to November.
This allows him to be undressed with his flock all morning without putting on too much body mass or putting himself at risk of deer hoof. As it is slightly above the BCS card 5 ideals, I concur with your choice to substitute the needless, symbolic amount of sugary food in your nutrition with a dose of balancing agent.
I' m not acquainted with broodmares that are susceptible to soja, but if this is a matter of your interest, either try to find a dietary balance that does not contain soja as a component, or go to a multivitamin/mineral instead. It' s pretty simple to find a "multivitamin" that complements and compensates for a predominantly grassy or lucerne based meal and is in a delicious granular shape so she can still easily have it.
Regarding your last issue, middleline dermatitis, a number of trials have shown that horse supplements with omega-3 fats have a decreased reaction to hypersensitivity to allergic rash. Substantial quantities of omega-3s are found in linseed, chip seeds and seafood oils, and there are several premium brands on the table that offer stabilised source for these constituents.
Amega-3 levels of fat, which are needed to help cell and tissue function, are much lower than those of extra energy (i.e. what a tough owner or an older horse needs), so the addition of these wholesome fat supplements should not affect their total diet.
