I won't judge you but I will say that you need to get a vet out there to help you get these horses to a healthy weight. Work with your veterinarian to find a nutritional program that works with you and get their teeth done ASAP. A fecal count may be a good idea as well to see how wormy they are if they are wormy.

It's going to sound harsh, but if you can not afford to take care of them maybe you should think about adopting them to someplace that can...

Yeah. I can't afford alot. Im not rich. My horses are for my mental health, not just the joy of having them. I wish I could do more for them

I have thought about selling them or giving them to a rescue. I would go loco with out jasper. He's keeping me healthy mentally

I undestand. If there is a local adoption agency, maybe you could volunteer your time to spend with Jasper. Many adoption agencies adopt within a rather local radius.
If you could give up one, maybe affording Jasper would be more affordable.
I know it is difficult but you have to put the horses needs before yours.

I mean I can afford them but barily. If I need help my gramparents will send me money, but I try to do it my self

SD is right about the adoption agencies - they will often place them in local homes, and there is a chance that you can still visit them.

You need to focus on getting these horses healthy. Sometimes, we all need help. If your grandparents are willing to help you pay for some vet bills, then it might be a good idea to ask, because it sounds as though they need to be evaluated by a vet, and they need to have their teeth floated as well.

Im not going to give one up. I can get them fat in 2 months. The officer said she would be out here in 1 to 2 months.jasper is mine and I don't even own the other one. Its my moms pony. I have a feed situation so I don't want people telling me to give my horses up bc I have A.C. Out and they said they were skinny, ya'll don't know the situation im in so please don't tell me to give them up. I just want to know good senior feeds

Ok lets get back to the best feed for them. It seems like everyone wants to argue on here. I was on GUG and everyone there was not asking questions and just giving their opinions on the best feed. So all I want are opinions on that

We're not arguing Erin.
But fine, don't give them up.
If you are going to keep them though, I would advise you borrowing some money from your grandparents to get their teeth floated. Otherwise they're not going to be able to EAT the food you get them.

I much rather you keep your horses than have them taken away. We have given you ideas for feed. Proper health paired with nutrition is the only way you are going to get these horses healthy.
