I am thinking of taking in a belgian colt. Is about almost 2 1/2 yrs old and about 14.2-14.3. Owner is unsure of parents heights, both were pure belgians between 16-17 hands. The colt is thin.. you can see all his ribs, his hips protrude with big divits at his flanks. His belly is huge and very "wormy" looking. His coat is healthy. Seeing that he is malnourished, would you expect him to mature as large as the parents?
I really was not looking for a full draft, and had been looking at pmus online for adoption... but can't help feeling sorry this little guy and he's fairly local. He is very low priced, but had NO vaccines at all and needs to be gelded. We have the facilities to quarantine him and I had wanted a project anyways...
So what would you say, go for it or no way?
Sorry no pictures
