    He is an adorable little thing!


    I would just like to say not sure if you got him from a reputable breeder or not or what you paid for him but I would document his weight and have a vet give him a full check-up. Not to be a debbie downer, but it's something to worry about since you just bought him and he came in presumably much more over-conditioned than you were expecting. Carrying extra pounds can cause major complications down the road, especially for a breeding stallion as obesity can have a HUGE negative impact on fertility not to mention general health. If you plan on promoting him through shows and to stand him to outside mares you want to make sure he's healthy and capable of what you want before you sink a lot of money into a stallion that may no longer be fertile or has underlying health complications.

    Hopefully you won't have any problems with him and I wish you the best of luck. I have a QH that gets fat when he thinks about food...so I feel your pain on trying to keep weight off him!

    When we first he wasn't eating but he is now, he isn't peeing much at all and when he does they are small ones, he used to get sweaty which he doesn't any more, he doesn't breather right when he goes out on a walk, yesterday he started walking stiffly and he has runny eyes and nose

    Hopefully you have him quarantined from the rest of your horses? I would be worried about something contagious as this sounds like something other than
    "simple" colic or shipping fever. Hopefully the vet can get out soon and get him all patched up! *Jingles*

    He has been quarantined in case it was flu as there is no equine flu in shetland so no ponies get jab for it unless they go to the mainland
