This little guy was our rescue horse its been about 6 months I think he has come along way but still has a ways to go but I would like to figure out what breed he is thanks for any input
Lucky little guy! He was headed for the big pasture in the sky & it wasn't going to be a kind trip either! Good on you for adopting him, he's coming along. He kinda looks like he's got a TB butt to me. Off the subject, he's got a bit of a potbelly, has he been wormed with a broad spectum wormer lately? I could be off here as I am not familiar with hardship conditions, but he looks wormy to me.
He has been dewormed I used quest on dec 1st he is fed alfalfa so I wondered if that was the reason for the belly sometimes he looks like that then the next he does not?? He has had a very rough start being taken from his mom then being ran thru an auction like a chicken with its head cut off allergic to fescue juvenile warts attacked by a coyote he is going to vet on sat to be gelded so iam hoping he can give me a clue on breed and age we are guessing around 1 yr he is the best horse ever though runs up to you loves to be with you he would probably come in the house if he could lol
Have you had his manure tested for eggs/worms? I wormed my horse and then I got his stool tested because he was still losing weight. Turned out the wormer I had him on missed a few species and now he's doing great and keeping his weight.
It's definitely worth testing.. it's like $15
I can't tell you what breed he is, but he's very handsome and you are wonderful for taking him in and turning his life around :)
Well we had he gelded and vet said yearling not sure of breed he just said he is a horse.. oh well breed doesnt matter he is happy and on his way to being healthy! Ima sure what ever he is he will be stunted due to improper nutrition.
