I'd rather you make your comments as you wish - either long or short :) I like reading them and I think I get what you mean(I thought you will have problem understanding me). I didn't know the abbreviation OP (so far) but now I know: so not only do I learn about horses but also new words :)
This is my skinny boy from today:
I lunged him today and found out he had no problem with poles: he didn't even touch them, the same with cavaletti. I don't know W H Y?
( Just a guess: maybe you are right about his hooves being too long?)
BTW That's his father:
I talked to BO and he told me that my horse was given feed + oats during winter. I saw some pieces of corn in it but as I said - it was him who was responsible for feeding horses. Now I know I have to learn a lot :)
Since you have told me that I have to do sth about his weight I visit him twice a day and give him oats+ lucerne+vitamins in the stall so that he can eat without rush. And as I said I am going to order feed on Monday and have it on Tuesday.
BTW 2. You can watch the video I made last year. Maybe it will give you an idea how much I care about him :)
