HELP losing weight!

Anyone ever worry about there horse when you agist them away from you say at a barn? Like there feed?

I am wanting to put him on fulltime hay, but I don't want the other horse he soon will be in with eating it?

Pleae excuse he is filthy! He hasnt been washed in 2 or 3 months, and I can't hose him or do anything with him until he is out of quarintine ugh which HOPEFULLY is tuesday since that is his 10 days in there.

I am arranging a vet check up, for ulcers, blood work, and his due for is strangles vacination, and I am wanting his sheath done so hopefully they can do that to so they can show me how to exackly do it

His paddock is just mud, and he is slipping, I am soooo worried he will break his leg
I was cleaning his water out today in pouring rain..and thinking *** is wrong with it its not cleaning water..and I am guessing the water is from the dam in next that healthy?

Him 2 days ago,
Him like 2 or 3 months ago

How long has he been at this new place? How often is their water dirty? What type of hay do they feed? Will he be out on pasture? Has he been properly dewormed?

I think having the vet involved is the next best step. I would be concerned about him slipping in his paddock all the time

He is in quarintine he is due out on tuesday..yes been wormed a 2 in 1 was requirements of going there hence the quaurintine...

He is on hay, bran, camamile thing, 50/50 chaff and maxi soy.

I tried cleaning it but is an auto fill trough but is like mud, which is what makes me think it comes from the dam

Ok first you need to slow down, he's not going to die, just relax. Have the vet do an exam and pull blood and all the such and see where to go from there. Did he lose weight suddenly or was it over a period of time? If it was just since moving there is a good chance that the stress of moving has impacted him or they are not feeding as much as his old place.
