Comments

Alejandra was pregnant at which time I noticed an increase in urination and drinking. This spring she was found to have lost the foal. She had gained a lot of weight. Acth (197) and insulin(195) were tested and found to be quite high. I have taken her off grass and am feeding her hay which I have started to soak. I have started to put her back in work. She gets alfalfa pellets and beet pulp and a ration balancer about a cup total to mix garlic and magnesium in. She also has free choice mineral block. The hay is last years but from the same field. Thanks!
