So...here's what's going on with my horse, Tucker. He's a 16 year old OTTB who has always held his weight fine. I mean, he's always been athletic-looking,but never THIN. His ribs have always been feel-able, but never visible. But now...it's weird. I can see this horse's ribs. They aren't poking out or anything, but theyre definitely visible. however, he has a hay belly. I unfortunately dont have any pictures, but it looks like his fat just goes down instead of out. He's getting 2 coffee cans full of grain twice a day, and is out on a pasture from 8AM-10 or 11PM. During those night time hours, he has free access to hay. He definitely works as he's a show horse, but this has never been a problem before. I've always worked hard with him,and we've always shown about as much as we do now. ****..a couple of years ago he was working WAY harder than he is now. Does anyone have ANY idea as to what I could do to help get some fat over his ribs? I'm starting to get a bit worried about my boy. He's still working fine, and isn't showing any unusual fatigue. He's UTD on all shots, dewormings, etc. He always seems to be SLIGHTLY dehydrated, but this is probably just me being paranoid. I have someone else check if he's dehydrated(pinching skin) and they always tell me he looks fine and i'm just worried. *sigh*...I don't know. Any and all help and/or opinions are appreciated.
