[quote=darkiss4428;4018330]you know what don't worry about posting! I feed my horse plenty they have made good progress for those who can't read! I AM NOT PLANNING ON SHOWING HIM UNTILL SPRING OF 2015 IN HAND NOT IN SADDLE! THIS IS NOT A FORUM ABOUT FEED MY VET IS WORKING WITB ME TO GIVE THEM THE CARE THEY NEED



Do you feel better now?
I can read but I am thinking you are not understanding what I am saying. If you are feeding what you say you are that is WAY MORE FEED than any horse could eat so I think you are mistaken in what you are feeding.

Any horse eating that much would probably colic, founder, be very obese and you would be broke.

Chances are it was a typo. Either way, this thread isn't about his weight. Maybe you should read his journal thread, and comment there. I believe the OP is doing a good job with him.

I'm looking now, and that does seem like an extensive about of grain. But not way too much.

I fed my mare two scoops (like your scoop) twice a day. When she had her colt though I uped it to 2.5 scoops of grain and a half scoop of beet-pulp (dry measurement) three times a day. With my foal, when he was a yearling I fed him a scoop, twice a day, of a complete feed along with free choice hay.

It's a battle because not only are you trying to feed him up to grow, but to add weight at the same time.

Is he on free choice grass hay? If you can do it, I'd give him as much hay as possible with a complete type of feed. He is looking better though, especially Rouge too. Good job!

[QUOTE=darkiss4428;3994602]ok so many of you know twitch my little rescue horse we think he is a saddlebred or saddlebred mix he is about 2 years old and I plan on starting riding late next year I want to show him as a grade horse later but I have no idea what to do with him! I have always done speed events and all i'm told twitch was gaited I have yet to see him gait other than walk trot and canter I have not ridden him yet ether I want to do something that will take advantage of his speed but also use his graceful laid back personality i'm a bit worried his legs will be too long for cutting barrels or weaving poles







Darkiss - I don't think anyone has been rude to you. A couple of people queried your feed quantities because they do sound confusing but they were only trying to be helpful - all you had to do was clarify how much you were actually feeding
I suggested you put off riding him for another year on top of what you were planning to give him some extra time to mature - and before you bite my head off please look back to your own original post where I have highlighted in bold that you were planning on riding him late next year.

since I cannot alter older posts me and another person discused when to show and I agreed a few posts down on a time frame with starting showing in hand next spring and in saddle the spring after

Im sorry to chew your head off I was already upset and snippy I know what I feed and I know how big my measureing containers are I really am trying to get both horses healthy and getting a lot of greif about it in real life from people saying I feed too many times a day to im not spending money on people but on horses and trying to tell me what to feed and how much I feed what my vet has told me to work up to and I really don't want to cause more problems throwing weight on them fast they will get there it will just take some time
