    Lmao, you may find this hard to believe but he has LOST weight since he has been with my mare. Before he lived in a pasture and all he ate was grass and hay. No one ever paid attention to him. Then he came to my house, which before I had 4 horses and my gelding gave him a run for his money so he lost a lot of weight.

    Though I agree, his owner needs to get off her lazy but and come ride him when I ride my mare.

    He needs more than that. He needs a vet to decide on a suitable diet to get his weight down. Are you boarding him for your friend?

    Wow! He looks like a mini because he is so...fluffy/round.

    Color wise Im going to have to agree with the rest, red dun.

    I know, but she won't get a vet out to look at him.

    Kind of, she pays for half the feed for the month so it is kind of like a board.

    I've heard a lot of people that see him call him a Welsh cross with Shetland. O.o He is pretty short, probably about 14.2 hands at the most.

    I'm sorry, this may seem harsh - but if you are feeding him.... can you not cut back? Tell her you can't stand watching him eat himself to death and threaten to kick him out if she won't get a vet out? Tough love, but doing nothing doesn't wash your hands of part of the blame.

    He gets way less feed then my mare. The next thing is no feed besides a pasture, I would kick him out but then he wouldn't get worked with one bit. That or her parents have threatened several times to send him to the "glue factory" things as such. I'll be sure to be getting her out more often to ride him, I have to force her just to come over and groom him.

    I eat way less feed than my friend (who is way skinny), but I am still fat. So I am obviously not eating way less enough.

    Horses have different metabolisms. Way less means nothing if the poor creature is still horribly obese.

    The other thing that scares me is that his hair coat is so different than the other horse he is out with.

    I would guess he has cushing's.
