hi! i have a 6yr old OTTB.
we have been showing pretty heavily over the summer, we are done now and he has had a bit of time to rest. he was off for about a month and a half over the summer, which resulted in quite a bit of muscle loss, I gained most of it back but he still wasn’t as muscled as he was before. in the past month, I have noticed him to be looking a little thinner.
now onto his feed…
he was recently (beginning of the month), switched onto tribute senior sport. I switched him because I feel his old feed was making him girthy. He was treated for ulcers a few months ago, for two months. Since the grain change he has been a lot happier stomach wise, but i feel he might be loosing the weight from the grain change.
he gets 1.5 scoop in the AM and PM of the sr sport. he also gets canola oil. i usually give him aloe vera soaked alfalfa cubes whenever I’m out, so probably 5 to 6 times a week. along with his other supplements i added animed muscle gainer about a month ago, I feel I should take it out of his diet since I have not seen a change, I’ve actually seen a decline in his muscle.
I had him on daq bloom in the winter and really liked it, should I think about getting him back on it?
just trying to figure out if he could be losing weight from not being as active, the grain switch, or some thing else I might be missing?
thanks so much.
