We recently rescued a 22 year old TB from his home of the past 15 years. He was a a little heavy but badly sunburned and sand blasted. He was a very beloved pet and raised many grandkids.
We have kept him on the food they gave us and added a little sweet 10 and now safe and sound senior formula but he just isn't interested much in eating. He's slimmed down considerably.
I know that a lot of that is him getting in shape because he rides every day now and hadn't went down a trail in over 3 years when we got him.
He's just staring to have an appetite again but I think he doesn't like mixing with the other horses much.... He's more interested in people. And he loves his friend. He just wants it to be him and his 13 year long stall mate and all the attention to be on them like it has been for 2/3 of his life.
I don't know what to do to get some weight back on him. He doesn't look bad but I notice the difference. The other problem is that we are adopting him out and he may not go to the same home as his buddy.
How should I prepare him for that and what can I do to get weight back on him quickly. He's very active.
Any advice would help.
