Oh, just saw the other pictures.. Is he active at all now? I would really start slow and pack on the feed with him, but instead of letting him just hang out I would start keeping him active, like lunging and ground work...He can use those calories and turn them into muscle as well as fat instead of just trying to build fat it will be better for him all around..If that makes sense?
Do you have any recent pictures? What senior feed are you using? I've had really good results with Nutrena Life Design Senior.. I also feed free choice high quality hay, a free choice mineral block, Omegatin for an all around supplement, and when needed I'll add a boost of beet pulp and Rice Bran oil.. There are just SO many things you can do to boost weight.. I also love the Farnam Weight Builder.
Lol Please don't think I'm dogging you out about his weight, I'm really into horse nutrition and figuring things out like this, I'd love to go to school for it but I'm already close to graduating with my Early Childhood Edu degree.
