My new horse showed up last night and when he came off the trailer I was shocked at how skinny he was. I seen him last the week before so I don’t know how I never noticed it. He isnt ribby but he has no muscle or fat anywhere. I know muscle will come with work but he still is skinnier than I would like to see him…
So here is my question…How do I put weight on a 5 year old Morgan gelding that still has some filling out to do without adding any energy. He already is a bit of a hand full and I don’t want to add to it.
The breeder told me not to worm him till the first frost but im thinking about worming him just to rule that out. Also I have the vet coming this weekend to take a look at his teeth. He was on a green pasture and getting hay so he might just be a hard keeper. Anyways, thanks guys..
I took this pic with my phone last night so its not the greatest quality but its all I have for now
