Joe, he gets a good balancer with his oats, I didn't think of mentioning that, so his nutritional needs are covered. Apart from that, he had almost all winter off work, and I've been increasing his workload gradually - I do believe he is looking better than he did a while ago. Thanks for your input, though, and I completely agree that plain oats do not provide a horse with all that he needs! I also hope that I'm doing everything as it should be done, and, until the end of summer, I will be able to post pictures of a much better toned horse. :)
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
