    Poor baby!

    My old farm thought this was the normal weight for TBs, too . . . And they had 12 of them. It was just awful. When I left (because of their neglectful/abusive mentality, among other things) I tipped off the local SPCA, but they wouldn't do anything .

    Not trying to justify this ad or anything, this horse is in terrible condition and I suspect there is more wrong with him than simply lack of groceries. I ride a TBxWB who used to be an AWFUL keeper. She was on really nice pasture during the day, free choice alfalfa grass mix all night, and got ridiculous amounts of grain and beat pulp with corn oil and vitamin/mineral supplements twice a day. I was actually a little concerned about the amount because of her age, and didn't want to cause problems with bone/tendon growth rates due to nutrition imbalance.

    I tried to get her on a pelt instead of grain (COB), but tried 3 kinds and gave up as she would take a couple bites, stop, and look at me as if to say "What is this manure?!?" She had her teeth done, and was on a regular worming schedule, and we were considering getting some blood work done, but she was otherwise healthy. She just wouldn't gain FAT. She was bone and muscle. Shiny and bright eyed. This was when she was 5. The next year when the season started she was put on a similar feed schedule, but was eventually weened off most of it until she was just getting a scoop of grain a day. And she looked great!

    This winter (she's 7, coming 8) she's actually fat! This most like had to do 100% with the fact that she was still growing (filling out), but it just goes to show that despite efforts, some horses just won't put on weight sometimes.

    Yeah, it's one thing for them to be thin and growing, but this horse is 13 years old. Quite sure he's past growth phase. You can tell the difference between a horse that is well fed and growing and thin and one that is just underfed or somehow not absorbing the nutrients he's consuming. Poor fella. I hope he finds a good home.

    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.

    Yeah, that's true enough. I shouldn't be so quick to judge not knowing the whole story behind this guy. My horses have always been REALLY easy keepers and it's keeping the weight off that I have challenges with.

    Yes, a rather average-sized giant...unless you're talking about the dude riding him. He'd have to be a giant to make an 18hh horse look like he's maybe 15.2hh. People need to learn how to measure their horses. Just because it ain't a pony don't mean it's 18+hh.
