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

He's fine then, just keep on doing what you're doing & ask the vet. He kinda looks TB to me though. Smart little dude, he knows who saved him, he loves you.

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 :)

It is hard to tell when they are emaciated like that. How old is he?

Good for him that you came along to rescue him
He looks like he is 9 months old to me
And under weight as well

It may be just me, but I see some thoroughbred. He's as cute as can be though!

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
