YES! Has he seen a vet?

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Very much so!

Who is this poor guy?

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

thanks guys, this is a friends horse..he wasnt like this when she had first purchased him, but after being boarded with other horses that are rarely dewormed, its no wonder why he became so full, the vet is scheduled to come out tomorrow, just looking to see what others thought as well

i do know the guy she got him from only used ivermectin twice a year to deworm,(and fed off the deep sandy dirt in a roundpen-including when it was muddy) so my guess there is a great chance he had a small case when she got him in october..since then he was dewormed, and sand-cleared, but is in a pasture with 3 other horses that look..puffy..like he does

Horses should be fed Sand-Clear or another psyllium supplement once a month for 7 days (or whatever the directions call for).

We're all aware that this poor guy is grotesquely underweight, right?
