Comments

She is loosing weight and getting sores on her skin in odd places. She doesn't like powders, doesn't eat well. I keep free feed, pasture and hay in front of her 24/7. She could not take the Cushings medicine from the vet as she quit eating all together. That was about 5 years ago. She has been on the pituitary supplement since then from SmartPak. She gets .5 of a lb ultimate finish twice a day. 4lbs of SR twice a day. At 27 she is struggling to get up from down position. I shave her whole body 2 times a summer. Could you give me any ideas to get weight on before winter.
