Thanks, I thought that it should be fine just needed some others to say it should be okay, too :) I plan on riding him at least 5 days a week to get him in better condition and also to get him to respond a little better to cues.
As far as feed, using a 64 oz scoop, he gets half Strategy Healthy Edge and half alfalfa (chopped and compressed kind) twice daily. He's also on 24/7 very good quality pasture. He's been picking up nicely. If anyone has a suggestion of anything to add/subtract from his feed I'm open to hearing about it. When I got him his ribs were more prominent and angles were much more sharp. He's filled in nicely over his rib area and he's starting to get a little padding. His croup was also much more prominent and sharp with a "valley" between the bone. It's padding up and filling in...and really is the most noticeable sign of his weight gain to me. It's hard to see how much they pick up when you see them every day!
