    Mine is huge too. I got him with his ribs showing and now he's a blimp. Luckily he's just in the paddock so I can sorta control his hay intake. I'd definitely take him off the grass.

    Not the best running video but I managed to grab it today. They were a little wound up because a team of oxen with bells was walking by.

    Here's a vid of him grooming one of my doggies. Too cute.

    Love the video clips!
    Especially like the one where Littleman is grooming the dog, precious!

    Thanks Cassandra :) He is so friendly. He'll pretty much try to groom anything that stands still long enough.

    Cute, makes me want a Mini! Of course, the poor thing would blow up and founder in about 3 seconds. My pasture is WAY too rich.

    So I checked out the Equine Body Condition Score Chart. Other than the big belly he doesn't have the other fat deposits on the hips, back, thighs and withers.

    When I go back and look at the pictures and video of him when we first got him, he has always had the pregnant mare look. He's had 3 wormings so it can't be worms.

    Today we lead them together, starting in the pasture for about 15 minutes. It went well. We lead the little guy just behind the big fella and there were no issues. He was content to follow and the big guy was content to lead. About halfway through we switched up and lead the little one first and although slower the big guy was content to follow as well. Over the next week or so we'll up the time in the pasture and move it out to the road if they continue to do well. If so, I'll ride and get my lady to lead from the ground and then move on to me holding the lead from the saddle if it goes smoothly.

    What kind of wormers have you been using? It could be you're using a wormer that isn't as effective on the types of worms he has. That's why I suggested a fecal test.

    I'm using Exodus in the green box. I'm giving him 1/3 the tube which should do twice the weight that he is.
