10 year old gelding has lost quite a bit of mass over the past few months. Has gone from large foundation QH to looking like a race horse. No ribs just not that plump round QH that he usually is. Exercise has been increased but he has always been heavy set so this new “look” concerns me. Sorry I wish i new how to post pics to show the drastic change.
Free fed grass mix (90/10)
Hay was tested and added Mega-cell to compensate for any nutritional deficiencies
1 lb renew gold
1 lb oats
5 pounds alfalfa pellets
Teeth done in Feb (nothing dramatic, routine easy float)
Scoped for ulcers, found nothing but still treated for 30 days
30 days of succeed for hind gut ulcers
Blood work- normal
Hoof X-rays to see if maybe there were some angle changes that caused him to use himself different- negative on one hind so we are addressing that now.
Any one else have some ideas they can throw my way. Would like to hear some input on what I can look into health wise or supplementing him with.
