    New rescue project at our barn

    Poor guy. Apparently he was ridden on pavement a lot to the point he is sore. He's getting shoes(not my horse, I would leave him bare,he's the barn owners) the barn owner felt bad for him and took him in when he was at some place looking at a different horse. He's the new project barn owner put under my care. He's 5 years old, estimated 14.1 maybe 2. He said the guy got on him bareback in a halter -_-. So apparently he's dead broke(or dead malnourished) either way, he's at the barn now with lots of hay small amounts of grain working up because who knows what he was fed before.
    He's sweet as can be, I've named him Romeo. I don't know what he is, grade as far as I can tell.
    But he's got such a sweet face. :/ I very much dislike some people...
    He is thin, but I've seen worse, I this k he will quickly fatten up and within a few months he will shine. Then we can rehone him somewhere worthy.

    Agreed. He always has hay in his stall. Everyone's horse at my barn could probably lose a few, we like em chunky :) but I really believe he will plump up in no time. And when his feet are feeling better I'll give him a grand tour of the place. For now he walks 10 feet from his stall into the indoor arena with soft dirt and out the back door to the grass hill. He will be getting lots of loving :)

    Looks alot like my new ones! Keep up the good work on fattening him up! Just a tip, advice, my 2 cents, etc, I recommend a probiotic. I added that to my new guys, and it seemed to really help.

    I've thought about getting some tubes of probios. I can't dictate the feed he gets. But I CAN slip him some probios everyday.

    With skinnies like this I LOVE Fastrack supplement. Also Weight Builder from Farnam is fantastic.
