I agree and disagree that it is a TB thing. Yes, TB's are known to be "hard keepers" but you have to dig down deeper to find out why, intsead of just saying "it's a TB thing" because it isn't - it is a health thing.
I would have him scoped for Ulcers, I would look into digestive issues and I would be looking into your feed system to find out what he is lacking, and what he needs.
You should not see ribs, I would not consider him fat by any means. It's ok - I understand, because Nelson has been difficult, but we're getting there.
You boy is beautiful, and looks very kind and willing - but I would definitely dig deeper to find out why he isnt gaining weight...because it is not a "TB thing"
