I posted a critique a few weeks ago for my tb gelding and a few people pointed out that he was underweight. Well i've been working on it for about 3 weeks now and was wondering if there was any improvement. Since I see him every couple of days or so I don't notice it as much, however today he seemed to me to look like he has put a bit on, what do you think?
3 weeks ago
I noticed it mainly in his neck, but that could just simply be a bit of increase in muscle. I've been riding him in a loose rein to avoid him leaning on the bit and building the under-muscles in his neck. He's quite heavy on the forehand and very weak in his hindend, which is something we're working on ( do you think that's a tb trait or simply due to their racetrack training?)
Anyways, he's had a round bale in his paddock for the past 3 weeks and between him and my mare they've eaten the whole 500kg lot. Iv got another roundy for them to munch their way through so i'l post another update after they've finished that one.
He also gets hard feed once a day.
