Weight help please!
I have a 35 yr. Old TB gelding whom is usually at this time of the year in good weight, unfortunately this year he is a lot thinner than previous years. When we go into winter we like to have a few hundred xtra pounds on our horses but he would have to gain about 4-5 hundred to make that mark. We already lost one TB this summer (to Cushings and cancer)and we would like to see this guy make it as long as he can comfortably. He currently gets beet pulp, and about oh, I would say maybe 6 pounds of grain daily of the Purina senior. He also has free range of a nice grassy field and free choice hay all day long. Is there anything else we can do to put the pounds on him pronto before winter hits???
