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.
