    You can get winter pads put in, or i've hear using not stick spray on there hooves. But idk health wise if it is good.

    He looks good to me, fuzzy winter weight!

    I have NO clue-he totally could have TB in him. His owners bought him from a trail riding facility, so his lineage is anyone's guess. Do you see any TB features?
    Yes, I definitely do. He has very high withers, and his topline looks VERY TB-ish. I could be wrong, but when I saw the pictures, I thought, he's gotta have some TB in him. He's not full TB though because his legs are quite stocky and he's built a bit chunkier. I could see a tiny bit of draft in him as well.

    Fun-thanks for the insight! I think his owner sees him as a QH/TB/Appy cross, but I have no clue where she's getting the Appy from. I wouldn't be surprised if he had some draft-he looks eerily like ferh's Calypse, and she's part Clyde.

    He looks good, Don't worry about getting him "too fat" in Michigan... And in the winter... There is no such thing! I wouldn't mind seeing more weight on him if he were mine, but he doesn't look bad. I second the conditioning and muscle but there isn't much to be done about that although fields with snow make for a great workout even walking. On the breed side of things he looks very Quarter Horse to me.

    I'm going to agree with New Image. I think I'd keep the course with his feed until at least the end of Feb. Or even Mid March. Then I'd take another good look at him. The winter fuzzies hide a lot. I don't think he looks over or underweight. Once spring arrives and you get a better idea of what kind of riding schedule you will be able to work out you can evaluate the feed then. If you're going to start working him, he'll need the feed/hay for energy so I wouldn't necessarily cut back.

    You've done a great job with him, I think he's one of the most adorable fellas ever. I love his "mutty-ness" I see TB and QH for sure but on this guy it just doesn't matter. He's SO CUTE!!!!

    Dumas, I keep wanting to wipe your avatar off my screen-it's hilarious. It gets me every single time!

    Great, I'll keep on his regiment. I'm riding him in the snow every weekend, it's the weeknights that are tough. Right now he has some bruising on his sole so I don't know if I should be riding him. The farrier's coming out this week

    And thanks, I think he's pretty darn cute too!
