All the horses are fed alone, separate areas. Summer weather hasn't been that hot here except for a 2 week span in June, can a horse lose as much as 40 pounds in Summer? And there are bugs, he stays inside most of the time, he has the option to go out whenever he wants, but chooses to avoid bugs in his stall. He is also fly sprayed but as we all know, the bugs are still around. He doesn't act stressed but I guess he could be and it doesn't show.
Told BO about his weight loss, I was brushed off, said she didn't believe it, I said it was noticeable especially at topline and hip and I was with Vet and saw measurement for myself as I have at every Vet call (He is checked about every 4 months). I said Vet didn't find any illness or condition to explain it and I was very polite, just really opening a discussion so we could talk about it. Basically, BO smiled and said uh huh, with a little laugh, and said he looked fine and walked away. Oh boy, I wish I had my own barn.
