scoop of grain? I'd say no ....good quality hay, yes (but that's my opinion and I am definitely not an expert). I do know too much grain will make him sick... I would probably ask another horse person or your vet at this point to make sure. In youngsters it is easier to make mistakes as they are smaller.

As for the apples and carrots, I think they would be ok in SMALL amounts and cut into very small pieces so he doesn't choke. You also want to make sure those apples are cored and have NO seeds at all. Apple seeds contain arsenic.

I'll be your friend...and I made a mistake. It's not arsenic that are in apple seeds, it's Cyanide, but either way, a lot of horses are sensitive to it, my Morgan was.

You want to make sure you have a mineral block available to him. I'd start upping his hay intake.

Here is a good article for you to read. I know you have dial up but be patient it's worth it.

I used to ride Pasos. They are great horses but have a lot of spirit.
