Oh, I know what you guys are talking about, and honestly... I don't know. We've been feeding them alot, and I mean alot. Those that we ride have been put on breaks, but yeah. Its the same with almost every barn here, no horse is keeping the weight they should. Do you guys maybe have some tips, or suppliments I can try?

It looks like every horse in those photos is way too thin. I don't see how all of them could be so thin.

What are they currently being fed and how much? I would also worm them, they looks like wormy bellies!

Yes, worms could cause them to lose weight. De worm the ponies.

They definitely need more weight and I'm sorry, but if they are being feed properly and wormed like they should be they wouldn't be in that condition. I have a few of my horses that don't eat as well as the others so I separate them so they have a better chance at the food. Also make sure they are up to date on worming and floating possibly. I just believe they need a good worming and to be fed properly.
