I have a 5 yrs old gelding. When I got him, he was underweight. We let him free feed on a round bail with the other 4 horses and was fed grain once a day. He put on weight quickly!!! He hay is now fed twice a day and have cut back on the grain. I don't want him to get over weight because he will not be worked much over the winter but I want him healthy. Any suggestions??
I have heard that being a cold blood he will gain weight quickly but then will have trouble getting it off and can become even more lazy then he already is. Sounds like me but that's another topic heheeee.
