Feeding a Hard Keeper
I have a question for a friend -
She has two TWH geldings in the same pasture that always have the same diet. One is a healthy weight year round, and the other always drops off in the winter. Neither one is ridden much. The one with good weight is 5 and the hard keeper is 6.
Something else I noticed about him is that, when he trots fast or canters, his stomach gurgles/sloshes really loud. It makes the same kind of sound as if you run with a container that's half-full of water. No idea what that's about.
She's added a scoop of Purina 200 to his diet. I think it's 4 cups, once daily.
As far as I know, they're on a regular deworming schedule and both have good teeth.
I'm not really sure what to suggest to her.
