REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Increased prevalence of obesity among UK horses and ponies demands evidence-based advice to promote weight loss. HYPOTHESIS Restriction of dry matter intake (DMI) to 1% of body mass (BM, 67% [corrected] of predicted maintenance digestible energy [DE] requirements) would promote weight loss without compromise to health. METHODS Five mature (mean ± s.e. 10 ± 2 years), overweight/obese pony mares (BM, 257 ± 20 kg: body condition score [BCS] 6.8/9 ± 0.5) were… CONTINUE READING
