Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am an equine veterinarian. I'm sorry to hear Sassy is not feeling like herself. You mentioned she was diagnosed with a heart murmur last year, has it changed at all? Has she had regular dental care as she gets older? Most older horses tend to have trouble with their teeth as their teeth expire, making eating difficult or painful. I would recommend that your regular veterinarian come out and evaluate her heart and her teeth. Older horses often benefit from a change in diet, and switching them to a soaked senior feed and bagged chopped hay can help. Let me know if you have any further questions!
