    Which Ration Balancer?

    Thank you, I am in CA so that explains it. Good to know it's not to far off from your prices.

    Which Ration Balancer?

    I just started mine on the Triple Crown Gold, can I ask what you paid per bag? Mine was $54 and I thought it was a bit pricey, thankfully they don't get much. Thanks Katrina

    Parasites??

    Hello, I see this is an old post so you may not see the response. A couple years ago I got some rescue minis and they were loaded with worms. We wormed and wormed finally got rid of them, one of my girls always seemed to have soft or runny poo. I tried multiple things and started using Probios...

    Ration Balancer

    Thank you so very much. I'm going to switch over to a balancer and ditch the Pony and mini feed. I had no idea it had so much sugar. I do feed a good quality orchard grass hay and very limited pasture. They only get grazing time mostly for a change of scenery once and awhile for about half hour...

    Ration Balancer

    Thank you, that is what I was thinking but it's so confusing. I'm only a couple years in and still learning as I go. Do you know if the Purina Enrich has more sugar than the Triple crown? I'm not sure we have that brand available here. I do have a TSC here but other than that just a couple...

    Ration Balancer

    I also have a couple questions. I am now feeding the Purina Mini and pony feed. I am thinking of switching to a ration balancer. When I looked up the nutritional value of Purina Enrich vs the Purina mini feed. The balancer actually has more sugar. I guess my question is do they get much mess...

    Dry skin?

    Thank you, I was feeding (mostly just on colder nights, or when I do sand clear) the Purina mini and pony grain but was told they don't really need it so I stopped. Any idea if that is decent feed? I have a full bag now and can totally feed it, then switch if needed. They do seem to love it, I...

    Dry skin?

    Hi everyone, I have 3 minis and am noticing some dandruff and dry looking skin. Any reason? Anything I can give them to make it better? They are on a good quality orchard grass hay. I also use a probiotic (Probios) chews mostly as their treat. They were rescues and loaded with worms when we got...

    Hi From California!

    Hello and welcome, I'm from CA also, I have 3 minis and have had them about a year and a half. I also have a larger size pony. They have brought so much joy. We rescued them all but 1 mini. I have found a lot of great information in this group. Many blessings to you and your littles❤

    Please help...extremely overweight mini!

    I'm not really sure about your hay, but that seems like a lot. I feed a good quality orchard grass. My minis get about 1/3 of a flake twice a day. They are on a dry lot. I only use mini and pony grain to mix with their sand clear, and if it's super cold outside but in a very small amount. They...

    Stifle joint

    Hi everyone, I have a mini that has stifle issues, they get stuck from time to time. She is 4 years old, it doesn't happen often but I have been talked to about surgery. Has anyone had this type of surgery on a mini? Is it possible she could outgrow It? Have you noticed if it happens when they...

    Locked Patella Syndrome

    One of mine also has it, she is about 4 years old and the vet told me to keep an eye on it. I was told if it sticks for more than half an hour at a time then we should think about surgery. I was told by my local rescue she may outgrow it so now I'm clueless. It happened last winter and not much...

    Yes she was huge, I even had a few other people that looked at her and were pretty sure she was pregnant. She definatatly was not just full of worms. Glad to say she is much better now
