    Thanks for the reply, I’ll see if I can find somewhere that sells the calendula oil and offer her some, how much would you suggest, she’s a Hanoverian around 525kg?

    I’ve got peppermint I’ll see if she wants some of that,

    She’s gets soaked alfalfa pellets already, and I’ve started giving her an extra bucket with those, some soaked high fibre cubes and a scoop of chaff at bedtime, sometimes she finishes it other days she leaves some. She is a very stressy person and I’ll turn her back out overnight as soon as everything thaws and the mud dries up slightly.

    She does eat some fibre overnight so perhaps I’m worrying too much, it’s just doesn’t seem enough for a horse her size. She’s dropped a small bit of weight but always does in winter as we don’t have much grass by this time of year.

    Thanks again for the reply
