    He still hasn't gained weight. He seems to put on 10-15 pounds, but then loses it just as quick as he gains it. He's on a regular routine worming, he always has water, hay, feed twice a day (grain with beet pulp, high protein, & weight booster) plus free range grass. I met an older lady the other day who told me her yearling filly was the same way & she was actually considering putting her down.. I've thought about it, but he is still the same horse, he doesn't act sickly, but he just looks horrible. :/

    Hi rbarlo32 I have just finished reading your blog about the horse who lost weight pretty quickly back in feb. Of this year. I currently have a horse that looks similar to that horse pretty emaciated no muscle. We are fedding her beet pulp weight booster free range hay and still she is not gaining weight. We had the vet out and she tested her for epm which came back negative teeth floated . The vet now is saying she may just have a good long term prognosis :( I feel at a loss with this mare. I was wondering how your story ended. I read online just tonight that I should try a series of dewormers one now again in 14 days and if serious another at 28 days. Please any info will help
