However, should he not regain the enough weight before winter I am going to opt to start feeding him grain. I want to help his skinny butt make it comfortably through the winter. I do light to moderate riding on him - trail rides, flat work and lunging. Usually 2-4 rides a week with lunging in between every once in awhile. What would you recommend as far as grain? He is a tad bit spirited (probably a 4 or 5 on a scale of 1-10) so I want to stay away from grains that will make him hot as much as possible. Also, I was planning on getting a medium weight turnout on him through the winter. Opinions on that?
Thanks in advance.
