This is my 6 month old colt named Chomper. He is my first horse. I've had him about two weeks, He's a good fella!:) He keeps me busy! Tell me what you think:-P

He's awful cute but he sure does need some weight! Has he been eating better for you?

I noticed the dog in the background is just about as big as your Chomper!

He looks a bit on the skinny side, he doesn't seem to have alot of muscle/fat. What are you feeding him, is he always in that yard that he is in the first pictures?

Wow, six months? Looks younger Lol. He is totally cute! Do you know what breed he is? I love his big, round eyes =)

The first horse is always exciting. Were you wanting one for a while? Lol or just a random thing that came along and you got hooked?

Has he been dewormed? Just askin' ;) Looks like he has a bit of haybelly going on in the last picture compared to the rest of his body weight and size. It would also help to fatten him up a little =) Mine are in need of a worming too.

hes adorable but as stated he looks pretty thin!

Im glad I posted him. I thought he was skinny myslef. I dewormed a couple of days ago. He is a Paso Fino. He just nibbles on the hay. He eats like a little mice or rat. NOT like a cow!! But grain he'll eat it up. Doesn't have alot of muscle/fat either. How can i make him gain some weight? He's in need of it bad:( Thanks guys for replying!!:)

Paso Fino... I have been wanting a little baby for a long time, and the price was right also.lol.. I did deworm him a few days ago. He looks younger b/c he looks underweight i guess:(

It's a pellet type thing. It's a UK thing and I'm not sure how to get ahold of it, an old place I used to go to ordered it but I'm not sure where from. They said it worked miracles on their underweight foals.

I think this would be similiar and it's at tractor supply....
