    Jasper. Your opinion?

    I got him Friday 10-1-10 and he was skin and bones! I had been feeding him two scoops of feed twice a day and he has fattened up quiet nicely (At least I think he has) and I took him down to one scoop twice a day. That's the reason I posted this, to see what you guys think and any tips you may have. We were told he is 6 years old, broken, gentle around kids (proven), loads easily, bathes easily (proven), and has all his ground work (proven). He is out of peppy sand badger. We think he is a Bay Tovero Paint. What do you guys think of him? Critique please =) Any comments welcome, good or bad.

    Here is a pic from the first day:

    Cute! Is he out on grass or is he getting hay? How big is he?

    When is the last time he has been wormed? Have his teeth been floated?

    He looks like a cute little horse! He has seemed to gained a bit of weight, but I would definitely make sure to keep feeding him up good. He needs a lot of muscling, but he appears healthy otherwise.

    He is looking great already. Congrats to you for doing such a good job.

    I am sure you are on it, but I can't tell from the photos how he feet are, so you should have a farrier come out, and a vet just to check him over.

    Congrats on doing so well but don't try to go too fast with the feed, that can cause problems too.

    What do you mean how big? My friend and I measured him and he's 14.2hh (If I recall correctly) He is eating grain and grass for now. On my dads next days off we are getting hay from my grandmother (she owns a horse ranch).

    I don't know about the worming. We are taking him to a vet on my dads next days off to update all his shots, get him wormed, looked at, and get his coggins test. I may sound stupid, but what does the teeth being floated mean?

    How would you build his muscle? Riding him and lunging him?

    Thank you! Yea, I thought about the feed thing, when he started fattening up I took him back down to one scoop twice a day (normal). I just wanted to get him fed and watered properly and back to health. He and a mare were out in a TINY pasture with NO grass so they both looked terrible. He is going to be used in horsemanship and drill team. November 17th there will be a farrier at the rodeo arena where we practice to take care of the horses hooves. We are going to get them checked then. They look good so far. Would you like for me to go get a picture of his hooves real fast? My friend used a hoof pick and dug everything out of them this past Saturday.
