Seedy toe solutions

Have too much cattle grass, too much rain and my warmblood mare loves to eat, hence she has seedy toe. She wears a muzzle 6-8 hrs a day to keep her weight in check. I have no dry lot to restrain her in either ( just a run in for weather). I feed her high fat low starch feed with extra supplements (flax, MSm, calcium, magnesium, sea kelp, iodine, vit c, chromium yeast, biotin, Alfa lipotic acid and co q 10.) I trim her feet every 3 weeks and use copper sulfate in the hole. Every time it rains, she goes lame, so I have to do epsom salt soaks. Any other suggestions would be appreciated! Mahalo

horse feed non-GMO, organic

Would like to more about non-GMO and organic horse feeds. I give my 2 BIG percheron/crosses Triple Crown 30%, which is mostly vitamins, minerals, etc. but it does have soybean and wheat midlings in it which are probably GMO products. Looking for a more natural feed but want them to get essential nutrients. One of them is IR, they both don't get enough exercise and need to keep sugars and carbs low.
