Purchased a 9 year old Appendix horse 2 n half months ago and he was underweight. Time has passed and I've noticed that he's gained some weight but not enough I could still see his ribs. Would like to know if what im feeding is correct.
6 quarts grain 10 percent sweetener
3 quarts of crimped oats
4 oz of weight builder = 2 scoops
2 oz vegetable oil
1 brick alfalfa hay
I feed him once a day and I ride him twice a week normal riding nothing hard working. Don't have time to feed twice a day due to work and school, but will that amount help him gain weight?
Forgot to add I dewormed him 2 weeks ago so he's clean.
