Ugg, not defending anybody but I know the feeling of trying to keep weight on some horses. There's a QH up here that looks almost like that during the winter. He destroys fencing worse than any bull or stud I've seen, so he's put out with the main herd and can't get the amount of food he needs to keep a healthy weight. My BO had him almost fat this last summer but he was on free choice alfalfa/grass hay + 10lbs of grain. The vet has checked him out and everything checks out fine, it's just something about this horse that he needs an insane amount of food. It's slightly bizarre seeing the herd as the other horses are in great condition except for this one. The only open pen that is built solid enough for him has around 3ft of snow and you can't get into it. It's our next project this weekend so we can get his butt by himself again and get weight back on him.
