The best way to see improvement is to have photos taken from the same angles for comparison - unfortunately, the photos you just took are not showing much at all that can be used to judge improvement. The third photo comes the closest, and does appear to show some change for the better.

I could see major improvement. Look at his chest muscles and his rump on the last one facing. He looks so much better cared for.

How do you know he doesn't digest hay right? Does his poo have lots of stalky fibers? If so he may need his teeth floated.

The 1st thing is maybe more digestable hay. Hay pellets maybe.
Not sure when you took photo's but your pasture doesn't look lush and green so it's not like he is getting great grass in the summer is it?

Are you sure he is getting enough hay in the winter?

If he was a the trainer last winter my guess is you won't have the same issues this winter. If he has a problem have a vet look at him to be sure. It could have been what and how he was being fed last year and they didn't take good care of him would be my guess.

No I've had this problem for the 3 years that I've had him.. He wasnt as the trainers. I was talking to one.. and asked about the poo.. He never has seen sunny.. and yea.. Maybe I can get him just an overall exam.
