    I would not recommend senior feed for a horse this age/condition. I really do not think he needs a lot of "groceries" per say, but definitely some real WORK! And a horse on a regular working schedule may need a bit of grain as a part of his diet to gather energy from.

    He is long in the back, and a little straight in the pasterns, and his neck is huge, but I REALLY like how he looks. I would start riding him, a lot. Build his top line, promote self carriage and you will be amazed at how he changes. A neck sweat could work well in your favor too.

    But as a performance horse, I would upkeep him on a grain.
    Really nice looking horse!

    Your daughter sounds like a good girl and it seems like they will be a great match! Hopefully your 3 week trial goes well and that you can end up with a good 4H horse :)

    Mudpie is 6 years old, and he's on senior feed. It's got a lot of great vitamins and minerals, and it helps him keep his weight healthy. The stuff he gets (LMF) also has glucosamine in it, which is great for his joints(:

    Maybe your horse does well on it, but I am picky about what non-seniors I will feed that too. I just personally think her horse could do just fine on a different grain

    I love him! He looks like such a sweetheart. If he has a nice personality, I wouldn't give him up. He definitely looks like he just adores your daughter. And your daughter sounds like a very smart young lady. Good for her!

    I'd look far and wide for a horse with his expression. I've seen bored, ridden down horses who are kids horses, but would probably not be if they weren't worn down to it. This guy looks like he likes kids. He looks like he'd sure take care of your daughter and love doing it! I think he is stout enough to halter on and not look like a wimp, and doesn't have anything hindering him from being the awesomest awesome all around horse for her! Great buy! Hope he works out!
