Situation is this: Roz has been thin for the past 8 months or so. He's not terrible by any means but he's more lean than I would like, especially heading in to winter. All of the normal things are good; he's current on dental care and parasite checks. We are limited by 2 factors.
- I really can't/don't want to feed him alfalfa or rich hay as he lives with Emi and she doesn't need that kind of feed.
- He's not the best eater and will only eat so much grain.
I realize he's a 25 year old TB and we might be doing the best we can do but it doesn't stop me from wanting him to look a bit better. He basically gets all the grain he will eat (in two feedings), and if I give him more he ends up walking away from it part way through. Hopefully by the winter I will have a slightly better way to separate him so he has more time to eat and could be left with grain that he can return to when he's ready for more. He currently receives Purina Active Sr., rice bran and alfalfa pellets, pasture and all the hay he will eat. What have you found to be the most effective?
