My Gelding came to me in March and was a decent body weight, but could use a few pounds. Since I have had him, he has definitely lost weight. I feed him 4 scoops of Nutrena Perform daily with a once a day complete mineral supplement, as well as turnout to grass pasture everyday, and as much good pure alfalfa as he wants. But he is still not gaining like I would like him to. You can't see his ribs at all, but he's definitely not where he should be. He is all UTD on worming (within the last 2 weeks was his last dose), teeth, and shots. He is 4 years old. The other problem I have with him, is he just picks at his food and eats very slowly. He has never been a very fast eater, and will not clean his hay up that is in his stall overnight. He is not a fence pacer, and does not go anywhere very fast due to being very lazy! Also his work load is only a ride a couple times a week at the most, as the weather has not been cooperating. So I don't believe he is "running" the weight off in any way. The Nutrena Perform feed I give him is 14% Crude Protein, 15% Max Crude Fiber, and 9% Crude Fat. This is the highest protein and fat pellet that I have been able to find in our area. I will be going to the feed store again soon, and will be searching the tags more, just to make sure there is something higher I could be giving. Do you all have any suggestions as to a good feed, or good additive? He absolutely hates powder and will do anything to eat around it, including leave the little pile of grain it's mixed with. Any pelleted or liquid options I could try? I know he will never look like I beefy halter horse, but I would like to get him up to a good healthy weight. The below picture is about 2 weeks after he got here: This one was taken on June 3rd. He has lost a little more weight than in these pictures. I will see if I can snap a picture with no saddle the next time I go out to the barn.
