How quickly should a horse gain weight?
I have a couple of questions related to that and body condition scoring.
I'll just make up a horse to use as an example:
Let's say, at a score of 5, as they should be, the horse weighs 1200lbs.
What would they weigh, approximately, at a score of 4?
What would be the appropriate time frame for the horse to put on that amount of weight?
Same question for an overweight horse -
If 1200lbs is a 5, then what would a 6 or 7 be, and how quickly/slowly should the horse shed that extra weight?
Just trying to learn more about body condition and estimating weight.
