Ok some peopleI know bought this gelding about six weeks ago. Great horse rides and drives, kids rode him everywhere. About three andhalf weeks ago I went to there house to see there horses and measure there height for them. I saw this gelding he was a little ribby. I checked his teeth and they were a little sharp so I suggested they get him floated. They got an amish man out to float him the next week. Well this Sunday they asked me if I wasnted him. They said he was losing weight and they were going to shoot him. Well the person that I am I'm like no I'll make room for him not a problem I'll pick him up today. Know that I jsut saw this horse three weeks ago I'm thinking its not big deal won't take long to get him back to par. Well when I show up I'm in for a shock of a lifetime. COuldn't believe my eyes. Justa skeleton with skin streched over him. It was sad. I didnt know something could lose that much weight that fast. THye said since they had his teeth floated he hasnt touched any hay at all. When he pooped I saw that the oats they were feeding him were going straight through him. He had the runs with scalding all down his legs. Three of his four legs are swollen and covered in scratches. When he chews I can hear this very loud whooshing noise. I'm hoping that it is jsut his teeth issue. That the amish was just learning to float and screwed it all up horribly. Unfortunately my vet can't get me in to see him and the dentist til next Tuesday. I have been soaking hay that he does try to lip so that he atleast gets some nutrient out of the water. I am only feeding him sweet feed with vegetable oil. It is still going straight through him so didn't want to start him on anything more til I get his teeth done. Anybody got an opinoin on this or suggestions. I've taken on rescue cases before but this is the worst I've come across. I didn't know teeth could do that much damage that fast but if he wasnt eating at all for three weeks I guess it is possible.
