YAY another north carolinian!! I haven't seen you around yet = ) what a gorgeous boy! Do you plan on gelding him? And yeah he does need a little weight. He looks alot like my colt too. Also just as a suggestion I know you wormed him and now it should be easier for him to pick up weight but it WILL take awhile weight doesn't happen over night and you don't want it to either or it could hurt the horse more than help. But I was told to worm once a month. So that will help him as well not sure if you knew that because I didn't until someone told me. Good luck with your boy and I hope to see more pictures of him looking much better = )

Oh not the weight issue makes him look younger, lol, I'm just used to QH babies. He's just more dainty than the breeds I'm used to seeing =)

You are doing a very good job at seeing to him and caring for him. Maybe he just hasn't grown into the taste of liking hay yet, lol. My colt was put on mare and foal pellets, to give him more nutrition. But, I heard that giving them too much could do something to his back pasterns? Like make them grow weird?Don't quote me on that, lol.

Yeah, I haven't seen many from NC. I don't know about gelding him. Does it tame them. Yea someone informed me on worming once a month! Thanks though. I hope I can post up some new pics of him looking better!

I think this would be similiar and it's at tractor supply....

What are you feeding him now? I feel like we keep telling you to change feeds. Maybe what you are feeding him now is ok....?

equine junior may be ok I feel the mare and foal feed to my boy. As for the gelding. I'd definitely do it. It does keep the hormones down and makes them easier to handle plus you don't have to worry about him getting out someday and accidently breeding someone elses mares. If that happens you may be in for some lawsuites and paying out alot of money to either abort the foal or help take care of the mare while she is pregnant. And geldings are always fantastic anyway

Tractor supply also carries the Equine Junior, and you could compare them-or call yourr vet and ask what they recommend. Either one is probably fine.
