    what was she eating before she got sick? If its her first time on fresh grass that's very normal.

    She is 22% protein grain mixed with cracked corn. She is also eating bailed hay. The manure is sticking to her tail like a ball.

    I'm not a nutritionalist, but I have heard too much protein goes straight through them, maybe try reducing the protein a bit and add more quality forage.
