hi so here is the issue... there is this stupid woman where I keep my horse who has a mare and foal. The mare is a tb is approx. 16.2 hh 17 yr old and a maidan mum. The problem is this mare is so very skinny, to the point that you can see her backbone and vertiba, out line of her pelvis, all her ribs, she basically has no neck she just looks awful. She has a shiny coat cracked hooves. Any way so we commented on this to the propety owner and not long after she recieved hay in the paddock... so all good.she got this hay around 6 weeks ago and still has not put on any weight, and when the hay ran out ad was not replaced within a week I called the rspca. The horse has since been moved supposedly to a paddock where I can't see it which didnt work as I now ride past it. She now gets fed approx 2-3 biscuts oated, chaff and 1.5 kg breeder pellets a day.
From personal experience with tb they eat a lot. I was giving mine 4 biscuts of hay chaff 2 kg pellets and this was in a paddock with feed and that just kept the weight on.
Anyway so after a heated argument and her telling me the horse is fat :o just has no topline I am at a loss for words. I know tb lose their topline easy, but there should be a small amount of fat on this horse. Not all bones. I will take some photos and post them here when I can for more opinion
