Smile Weight update

Lately, my horse has been really energetic, besides the slight thrush(which has gotten better because I am taking care of it everyday) and the cross firing, he has been doing exceptionally well.

I was in deep denial about what he looked like a few threads ago, where I started an uproar and said he wasn't skinny but, now I know he's doing well. My BO says she is very happy with the way he looks and a lot of people I meet on trails say he looks pretty awesome.

Hind view

That's what he looked like in March

Right now he's on 3qt 1 scoop of Decade Complete Diet 13 (morning & night) DECADE™ COMPLETE DIET 13™ | Equine | Poulin Grain - Dairy, Equine, Pet, And Livestock Feeds

Free choice hay (morning & night)

He's out grazing 3hrs (morning & afternoon)

And he's worked twice a week walk, trot, small canter and sometimes crossrails depending on how hot it is. He gets worked about half hour each time.


Well this is what he looks like now (don't mind the date I haven't reset it on the camera)

So, I'd like a little more input what you guys think :)

He looks good to me.

My horses are such fatties, so I am battling weight issues also, but in reverse to you.

I think it's easier to get weight ON than to get it OFF. Sigh

Your horse's before and after pictures do show he has put on some much needed weight. Good job of it!! To help him develop muscling take him on long trot and walk trail/road rides, but mostly at the trot. Long trot work builds muscle while canter/gallop builds stamina/lung function.

Thanks, I have been trying to take him on trail but, he's so terrible on trail and gets so over excited that I can't do it because, it's to the point where it's like "will he be bad, will he be good"

I am actually probably going to get a trainer to help us out there.. Thanks everyone :)
