Re: older finicky mare

Hi Sharon,

Of course -- a good senior feed that is low in starch is made by Triple Crown. ADM Alliance Senior Glo is also excellent. Another one that recently came out is Dynasty Secure by Kent Feeds.

Not sure which horse we discussed -- looking at my record, we talked about three horses back on October of 2005. So it has been a while and I'm sorry that you've gone through so much with your gal.

Looking forward to helping you further,

Dr. Getty

I will consider doing a phone call, but would you be able to give me a replacement feed example for purina senior, I have done a phone call with you before she coliced the first time, so like i said have put a lot of money into this mare, and would do anything i have to do to keep her going, and will get back to you on the phone call (schedule issues)
