I have a 6 year old quarter horse rescue. When I got him he was malnourished. I brought him out to my father's farm until I could get him up to date on his shots to bring him to a stable in the town where I go to college. While he was out on my father's farm, he was eating grass and about two cups of 12% sweet feed. He filled out really well and was in great shape. This was for October and the beginning of November. At the end of November I moved him to a boarding stable and he started to drop weight. I expected this because it was a new place and he was back with horses again. Two weeks ago I moved him to the boarding center at my college because a spot opened up and he has been dropping weight like crazy. I put him on more feed with a higher carb count and liquid vitamins that I mix in with his feed. The hay at the stable is very low quality and finding hay around here is difficult. I don't know what to feed him but I need to put weight back on him because he looks worse than he did when I originally got him. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can give him to help him out weight back on?
