    Question Should I add anything?

    Hello,

    I have a 4 year old Quarter Horse. I moved him from the place I got him due to thrush and dropping weight about a month and a half ago. Since then the thrush has cleared up and he has put on a good amount of weight. The lady that gave him to me fed him a scoop in the morning and a scoop at night of a feed called "Sweet Stuff". She didn't have any grass on her property so she fed the horses hay several times a day. I decided to move him when I could visibly see his ribs. He is now on 2 scoops morning and night of Manna Pro Stables Choice 10. He gets grass during the day and hay with his feed at night. I also feed a supplement called Max-E-Glo in the morning with his feed.

    I am only writing about this to see if I need to add anything or change anything about his diet. Also, when should I start feeding him less? I don't want him to get too fat.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you are doing fine. Have you dewormed him since you moved him? If you havent you might want to and then maybe throw a mineral block out for him. Otherwise you seem fine.

    It sounds like your feeding him good now. If he starts to gain too much weight just gradually cut him down on feed until he maintains his weight. Every horse gains differently so just play around until you find the right amount for your horse.
