this is him one month after getting him (Last xmas) and I think he looks much worse then.

If your horse thinks your the greatest person in the world dont seek a second opinion.

I tried talking to her, she is just a ~~~~~ and refuses to believe anything I say. She even wants me to get rid of my chickens. I talked to a few neighbors and even animal control and they think its rediculous she would do this. We can't even do target practice here anymore because they call the cops! Animal control said that if they get enough calls they will be forced to remove the animal, no matter what the circumstances. Im considering moving to Idaho next year because to many city people are moving here and bringing drugs and stuff. One lady honked at my horse as she was driving up behind me (I was on the other side of the road!)the other day and got me thrown!

Citiots.. thankfully where I had my farm we had "right to farm" laws. I had a dairy farm.. and one of the top production herds in the STATE. I kept them clean and there were 65 cows and 60 young stock.. but they gather and they eat and poop.

We cleaned up with the bucket loader and all but there were times when there was smell. When siomeone complained I had the RTF law on my side and I would look them in the eye and say, "Smells like Money to me."

Soldier is in good flesh. Maybe a little more would be ok but too fat is as bad as too thin.

The citiots down the road need to get a LIFE.

BTW anyone who interferes with legal target practice needs to go back to the city.

Really. Needs. To. Go. Back. To. The CITY. Where they are "safe" from gun violence.. (ooh.. my sarcasm gene just kicked in).

The horse looks GREAT.

Ya we only had 15 cows on 120 acres! I am feeding as much as I can and he is still slightly ribby even with doing everything I can for him... The vet said as long as he is happy and well fed he should be fine. I watched the neighbor take pictures the other day. The place is a bit muddy from rain and I think she is going to use that to say my horses look terrible(Of course they love to get dirty!) ugh im so tired of this.

I agree he looks fantastic for where he came from. He has the most adorable face and I am in love with his legs. Big bones and feet like that are something sorely missing in so many horses these days.

Have you considered adding something to his diet that might up his protein/fat intake a bit?

I am a huge advocate of feeding alfalfa to hard keepers because it adds nutrients and protein without adding sugars like a lot of processed feeds. You can also add oil to his diet to increase his fat intake, which should help him bulk up a bit.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yes he gets free feed hay free feed chopped alfalfa and he gets grain twice a day with wheat germ oil or flax seed(whichever I happen to buy) and he gets perminant pasture, a probiotic, a ulcer perventative suppliment, salt block, mineral block, a vitamin supp, and lots of love :)
