Hey, so as many of you may know I just rescued/bought a beautiful Belgian. We're all pretty sure he's got EPSM, vet said it wasn't even worth testing she's so sure. He's lost a great deal of weight and a ton of muscle, almost completely on his hind end and topline. The most important thing is getting weight back on, which I'm doing well with. But he needs exercise, precisely exercises that will help his top line and hind end. He has string halt too, which my farrier 'prescribed' exercise for.
I know hills and poles are great, but I've got neither. So far I've been taking him for 20 minute walks around my driveway (a big circle driveway) he gets very tired and starts lagging behind after about 10-15. Just walking. I also turn him out, after about an hour outside (even with hay) he stands at the gate and wants to come in. There is snow out there, which I had him walk through a bit today, as it makes him pick his feet up higher, but he kept tripping - so I went back to the driveway. It's not icey, he's not slipping and it's soft, he just seems to stumble.
For reference this is what he looks like:
