While most are advised to feed the Cushings horse a specialized formulated no sugar/low carb feed, I believe that doing so can actually be detrimental to your horse’s health. Processed feeds are known to be a causative factor in Insulin Resistance and EMS.
My own Cushings horse doesn’t get any processed feeds. He gets RAW vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds as well as an organic, whole feed. He’s shedding out nicely, has a good attitude, good energy and is putting on the healthy weight and muscle he needs.
