Okay all. It's been 5 months since the winter from hell with this guy. He has since been treated with ulcers, has stayed on Smartpak's SmartGut Ultra and has his best friend back in the pasture with him (which has definitely seemed to lift his spirits considerably).
I just want to say first before I post the two comparison shots of him, that if anyone is on here searching for nutrition advice for their horses - take all suggestions seriously! And pay attention to what people tell you! Everyone on here was SO INSTRUMENTAL in getting him back in top shape. They answered questions, and literally walked through every detail of finding the right type of feeding regimen for him. I will never forget the new motto I learned - "Keep It Simple Stupid"
His current feeding schedule is he is on pasture 24/7 with Purina Ultium and his SmartGut Ultra supplement. He is in moderate work 4x a week, and we are working on building him back up into shape but he has come a long way.
Without further ado ... My big beautiful bay man!
