weight problem and arthritist
my 12-14 yr old arabian has weight problems in the winter.he has noticable ribs and doesnt look like he's doing too well.he is on full time pasture with a run in shed and is pastured with one other horse, my 3 yr old tn walker mare.she isnt food agressive but she is kinda pushy.what weight gain would help him as im not able to monitor his feeding as he isnt housed close to me. And on top of that he has arthritist in his knees. He doesnt like to lounge any more and his knees snap,crackle,and pop when im leading him.im thinking about getting him injected with something to help his arthritist because when the weathers really cold and bad he can't really get around much.hes fine in summer, no weight problems no arthritist no nothin but its the cold weather that kills him.any help on this?
