Redhawk, yes he is an OTTB. He's actually fattened up considerable over the past year. He is severly parrot mouthed, so I know he doesn't absorb all the nutrition that he could simply because he can't chew as well. We work on his teeth a lot. I'm happy with his weight. As long as his energy level is good, I'm fine with a few ribs. Besides, I have tried every fat supplement on the planet and this is the best we can do.
Hotreddun, I'm sure my barn owners will appreciate your comment. It's a small, private barn where the home owners work full time and still run the place. They put a ton of effort into that ring. While the rubber is not as forgiving as a sand ring can be, it drains fantastically. When other sand rings are not rideable after a storm, we're all out there having fun.
