I agree that a vet checkup for both of them might be a good idea. The reason I asked if Cash was gelded is that I'm seeing a significant amount of 'skin' in the Cash's testicle area, and it seems to form the general shape of testes rather than just loose flaps- so he appears to be a stallion in that picture. Ofcourse, he could just be one of those geldings that tend to have a little more 'meat' there (so sorry for the graphic descriptions of these things, but I'm trying to explain the best way possible xD) than others, and if that's the case, its no big deal. If he IS a stallion though, it would be a very, very good idea to get him gelded ASAP as that it will help with behavioral problems due to hormones, make him safer, and very possibly keep him healthier longer. I'd even go as far as saying it might help him loose a little weight.
I'm not familiar with Tenessee. Do you have any hills in your area? If so, you could take him for walks (and if you feel comfortable, trotting in hand) up and down hills to help him loose some weight and build muscle tone until you have someone teach you to lunge!
