My TB gelding Vaguer that I owned several years ago is back with me now but I was absolutely irate when I saw how thin he is. And how bad he looks. The lady that had him even tried telling me that he doesn't grow a good winter coat?!?!?! Well when I had him he always looked like a big ol' grizzly with all that extra hair! Of course he's not going to grow a good coat if you don't feed him enough you ******! Oh yes I was mad, he is such a sweet boy just like a big puppy dog. I can feel every rib, there's not fat on top of them and I can feel ever vertebra in his back! *breathing*
Here are pics:
He actually looks worse in person if you can believe it.
Ok so first things first, deworming (who knows if she EVER even did it!).
But I am worried because winter is closing in way to quickly and it's going to be a cold one up here in Montana. He needs a lot of meat on his bones before the snow hits!
So what is the best thing to feed him to help him gain weight so he can be fat and happy for winter? I have been told beet pulp and/or senior feed would be the best thing?
