My gelding is a TB cross...from what I have been told, he is aprox 75% TB & 25% Saddlebred. He is 16hh and 969#. (These measurements were taken today, so they match the photos below.) I think he is a little on the thin side. I have one person telling me that he is fine how he is...because he is a TB. I have another person telling me that he is completely malnourished and that I am not taking care of him.
He is in pasture with grass 24/7 (unless we have extreme weather). He always has access to hay, and is fed 1/2 scoop Purina Strategy once per day. (Starting this week I am feeding him 1/2 scoop twice per day with some beet pulp as well).
He is ridden 2-3 times per week. We trail ride and ride on the roads some. We WTC, but nothing extreme. He had good muscle when I was able to ride 6-7 days per week...I am just unable to do that now.
The vet is coming out next Monday, so I will get his opinion then...but I wondered what others opinions are. Sorry so long, and thanks in advance! I can also get better pictures tonight. These were taken with my cell phone this morning.
