I purchased a 7 yr old Appendix QH gelding, Drambuie, at the begining of December. Over two months later and he doesn't seem to be putting on any weight.
He also doesn't have a lot of energy and breathes heavy after a couple of miles of moderate work.
I heard once that TB sometimes need blood-builder suppliments. I am looking for information on suppliments or feed changes to improve his condition, but need ways that don't cost a fortune!
I have been working on Dressage training with him and plan to compete in Dressage & endurance so he needs to be fit, but not much hotter.
Current feed schedule:
2 flakes good mixed grass hay
Turnout in pasture with limited grazing.
3-4 flakes good mixed grass hay
2 quarts of 12% Nutrena pellets
2 quarts of Purina Strategy
