Ok, so I'm looking for a little advice on my Shetland, Nippa. When I brought him home late last year he was quite the obese little thing.
So after finally managing to catch him (long story), he was put up in a dry lot where the only food he got was what I gave him. Probably worked out to about 3 biscuits of grass hay a day. He did lose quite a bit of weight, but I think had a little way to go.
So here we are 4 months later and I have a dilemma. I actually think he has started putting weight back on! He's only getting 2 biscuits of hay a day now, still on a dry lot and yet! I know it's hard to tell through his winter shetland fluff, but I was wondering what you guys thought as far as his weight? How much do you think he could stand to lose? Has he started putting it back on? This photo was taken yesterday.
I just don't see how I can cut his feed down anymore safely. He could certainly use some more exercise, but the weather is making that a bit tough at the moment (winter here). So any suggestions as far as controlling his weight?
