He seems much happier now that we put him in with the mares and foals. He still looks like crap but I've started feeding him before and after I ride like you suggested! Here are some pictures from yesterday!

You put him with the babies? Yeah
He's looking better already. And now you'll have an uncle for when the babies are weaned. Win win situation

I don't know why but he's always been obsessed with pregnant mares and new foals. He follows the biggest mares around until they foal, no matter how mean they are to him lol.

Awww, sounds like a sweetie xD we have a Shetland gelding who is that way. He was gelded at 11 months so there's no way he was ever a daddy, but he seems to think all foals are his and that he needs to help raise them. Makes for the best uncle gelding ever when weaning time comes.

I agree, your boy looks lots better. If you can add that beet pulp in, I think you should be good to go!

I mixed 2 pounds of beet pulp in, should I do more?

You should start out slow....he might have a case of the runs tomorrow lol.
Seriously, start with a handful a meal, and work your way up over a week, ten days.
