    what kind of feed do you give her? that may be the problem. I know when I first got my mare the lady had her on 14% sweet feed. It was too much for her and it made her crazy wild. So, my dad recommended that I go to the amish and buy a bag of their grain and mix it with producers 12% feed from tractor supply. It worked for her and she calmed down some, but still needs a calming supplement.

    Has she only been like this? Does she have any other health issues? Is she lazy only when running barrels or when you are grooming and leading her as well? I rode a very lazy horse, and there wasn’t anything wrong with him he just took a lot of leg to get going. He was also underweight, but once he gained weight he felt a bit better.

    I agree with the comments made on grain. This makes a huge difference. I find it best to read the percentages on the feed tags. For the wild ones we feed ultium by purina feed. The key is reduced starch and sugar (those feed the bucks) The fats and fermentable Fiber create focused energy you can work with. This is a feed for performance horses so it wont disappoint.

    I have also had great success with Red Cell as a supplement. It gives focused and steady energy.

    I hope this helps :)

    Thanks for all your help I’m gonna answer hunterjumper’s questions first.When she in a bad mood or woke up on the wrong side of the stall ,and haven’t given her grain for that day yet she’s like that.She doesn’t have any other health issues.She can be lazy sometime depending.When we groom our horses we leave them in the stall and let them eat hay.And she wasn’t lazy till she 9 months in foal.I forget what percent it is but there’s purple on the top and bottom of the bag and in the middle of the bag there’s a tanish color and i thnk it said livestock feed with the pic of a horse and cow on it.
