Yeah, the guy definitely needs some groceries..a lot of them.. I would get a vet to check that knee out really soon. Especially before any kind of riding..
Just asking, not jumping on you.. What's the problem with your old guy and gaining or holding weight? Older horses should be able to stay at a good weight, not all of them will be fat but should be able to still maintain a good weight.. I've never heard anything about your gelding, just curious.
