    A picture would help a lot :)

    By "closing them in" I'm picturing stock shoes that are not the right shape/size for the foot and the farrier is too lazy to heat the up and widen them appropriately,...

    If you go with an old freezer because it's free :D then you can set it up on a 3/4" or even 1" sheet of plywood with heavy duty casters to make it portable. That takes out "free", but it's probably...

    100% agree this is the place to start looking at this point (and should be the first place to look, always :) )

    "until proven otherwise" is the key here - don't take that to...

    *I* would start with a 2-3 month supply of Tri-Amino Nutramino and see. The 3 AAs most likely to be deficient are there - lysine, methionine, and threonine. What did FXL say for protein? If he can...

    But when the only thing that changed IS the nutritional aspect, then you start looking at what, exactly, is not there in enough amounts anymore.


    Biotin is probably the last thing I'd look to...

    I really don't have any stake in this stallion but I just can't so good enough things about Gatsby and his people. Elisha is really awesome to work with.

    The added Omega 3 from flax certainly has helped with allergy issues in some horses.

    Given its anti-inflammatory properties I wouldn't be surprised if it helped with muscle soreness, BUT, I'm not...

    Based on this picture, and the overall richness of the color of his coat in a few others, I'd say gray.

    Better pictures out in natural light will help, and soon, before he starts bleaching :)

    It's an apples and oranges replacement. You're going from forage to basically fat.

    It's not a bad thing to have one a little thin going into Spring :)

    300 calories a week is very insignificant considering he probably needs 20,000 a *day*. An hour of grazing on decent grass...

    Agree with Cindy. I would probably add a ration balancer unless I knew for sure the forage - grass and hay - was so well nourished there wasn't any need.

    2x/week won't help much, but certainly 10-15 minutes is fine, even 20-30. It's at least a jump start :)

    Once you can go out every day, then if he's fine on 30 minutes a couple times a week, try an...

    Welcome to COTH :D

    14.1/14.2 isn't that big but "big" is relative :) In general, you're looking at around a 15.1-15.2h finished height, as the general rule is to add 1h to the 24 month height. ...
