We have two what I believe are quarter horses, but they're stocky and probably 16.3 and regardless BIG horses. They get 6 flakes of hay a day. The gelding gets 2 3 quart scoop of alfalfa cubes on top of 2 scoops of senior feed, and the mare gets about 4 quarts of sweet feed a day. If I were to feed Ice any combination of those, he would explode from pent up energy.
Mine are 14.2, 14.3 and 15.3 and they get alot more hay than yours and not being worked. They really can't get too much quality grass hay. No one is suggesting more feed. Personally I don't see the improvement in the pictures. Not sure why you are asking for advice but not wanting to hear it. A TB has a different metabolizm and needs more food
