Sorry, I hit a wrong button. Give small amounts of alfalfa. I would give rolled barley and Purina vitamins/minerals. Remember, in a natural setting, horses eat a great variety of grasses. Alfalfa being a small limited season. Grain also is limited season in the wild settings that horses evolved. Have you paid attention to how much water she is taking in a day? Also does she have a salt block? Often horses who are run down, don’t have the energy to get enough off of a lick. I give loose salt in their grain. Just don’t over do it. Good luck, I commend you for knowing you need more information and reaching out to the community. Yvonne (60yrs of equine study)
