    I switch wormers. And I can't stop working him because I'm in junior rodeo. Gymkhana, jackpots, at least once a week.

    This is the one I'm most worried about...she's 15.3 and just a big girl...I've been making sure she's seperated for the lastmonth because they are always chasing her off. She was thin when we got her 5 months ago.

    No no, I didn't say stop working him. I said IF you'd stop..
    Your horse is in perfect working condition, really nothing to worry about!

    It all comes down to who's winning in the end.....right
    You could do what I said above, about a pound of soaked alfalfa pellets a day with a cup of veggie oil, per horse. Gives them more energy, doesn't make them crazy and just might make that tiny difference.

    And that's with the hay I'm already feeding, correct?

    Yeah, as a sweet feed, sort of. It could be even half a pound alfalfa pellets, but soaked, not too soupy, and the oil added. But start slow with the oil, little more every day, over the course of a week, 10 days, until you're at one cup. Otherwise you could find some rather runny poop
