OK, I am soon to be taking on a big draft horse who has not been ridden in a LONGGG time and has been left to become fatter and fatter in his pasture for a while. I plan to train him to be a trail horse, but first I need him to lose some weight! Taking him off pasture is not an option, because his owner does not have very many feeding options and pasture helps to sustain him a bit more. He is also a senior, 20+ so I would need to not push him a lot. I was wondering if people had any weight loss tips or feeding tips for me so I can help this big guys lose some weight! It is to the point of it being unhealthy! Thanks in advance!
This is not the best picture of his fatness, but it's all I have.
