I'd have your vet check for ulcers while doing the PPE. I wouldn't treat anything on my own without having a vet's recommendation. You may not want to spend a lot now for extra tests., but it will save you in the long run. I'd like to know how to treat my horse, then spending lots of cash and time down the road trying to put weight on my horse when with ulcers, you won't get results until you treat them.

Very cute boy...his neck muscles are much more developed below than they are above so with some down time those over developed bottom of the neck muscles should become less tone making it easier for him to develop the muscles on top of his neck.

Have the vet check him out. But if he hasn't been off the track for too long, I wouldn't be surprised if he's lost weight. Geldings tend to be affected a bit more (in general) to new places and new lifestyles so they will lose weight. I brought my OTTB home from the track and it took a long time to get him food that he liked (if there was a single pellet in his food, he would poop in his food bucket, he was very spoiled on the track). Even now (it's been 2 years) he likes his food but he's not an excitable eater. We call him "Pokey Pony" has to be the first one to eat because otherwise all the horse's would be ready to tear down their stall doors waiting for him to finish so they could go out in the fields :)


Your soon to be boy looks like he has good bone structure (I love the long legs) and he has a very cute face. Have you found any information on his bloodlines?

His dam is Bossy Boots, sire is Kiridashi. :) I was watching him eat, and he just doesn't seem to like eating, he has more fun playing with his blanket.. LOL. It fits him fine though, and according to past owners, he's always done this. I will have him checked for ulcers though.

I did bring him peppermints one day, and he LOVES them. I also looked at his winnings, and he didn't do too bad at all.

Because he's not racing and expending the calories he doesn't need as much feed, hay yes but not the supplemental feed.
