we bought an arab-x mare about 2 years ago and ever since she seems to be having diahria problems. She does not seem to be loosing any weight from it. We have tried different types of feed but it has not seemed to help her. Any advice would be apreciated greatly.

There could be a number of reasons for this. First, describe what you consider diarrhea. The term can mean a lot of different things to different people.

Have her teeth been checked by the vet?

Green grass can cause loose stools.

Has she been wormed on a regular basis?

Has she had a vet exam recently?

Is her temperature normal?

What is her behavior like? Interested in her food and the world in general, or listless and lethargic?

Hello Vicki,

My thoughts on the subject would be firstly to ask if you have wormed her with Panacur Guard 5 day? I expect you have done this so I wonder whether you feed molassed chaff? Very occasionally a horse will have the diarreah because it is sensitive to molasses.

On the other hand I would give her something like pink powder which should restore her gut to a normal healthy balance.

Hope this helps.

Best Wishes, Rachel Gillam
