He actually needs a little bit more fat on him now, so that's why I'm feeding the corn oil. It's not going to be a totally permanent thing, though. At some angles you can see ribs, and at other angles he looks great. Makes me so frustrated! I just need to do lypo on my other horses and get Toby a transfusion
. Haha. This quarter of school is especially hard because I loaded up on classes, but next quarter will be a little easier because I'll be done with core courses. So hopefully I'll be able to fit in 4 days a week. (New quarter starts middle of next month). I really don't like others riding him on a regular basis, but there is one girl who I would let because her riding style is very, very similar to mine, but she's headed to college two hours away.
