New rescue horse! Weight and worming!
I just got new horse for my little girl he is a qh and around twenty years old I was told. They guy who had him negelcted him and was really skinny, then he gave him to another guy who was able to get some weight on him but was only feeding oats and round bales. I was told guy number 2 was able to get some weight back, but he hasn't kept up with worming or trimming! He is just ribby in the belly, but his topline and hind end are BONEY!
First step I took is the vet will be out next week to float his teeth. I need to worm as well. I was told both good and bad about using a power pac on skinny horses, any advice? And I am slowing going to work him into a diet of soaked senoir feed, beat pulp, weight gainer supplement, free choice hay, and some green pasture.
