Hi, I have a 9 year old thoroughbred gelding, 16.3hh. i have had him since May and since he has come off the field and into a stable for the Winter months I am really struggling in keeping the weight on him. He has two feeds a day that consist of the following: Build-up mix, garlic chop, Sugar beet, oil, garlic powder, carrots and apples. He also gets two massive haynets (one in the morning and one at night) and i put one in for him at lunch. Oh and he also gets a ball that has pony nuts in and he kicks it around the stable and eats the content as it falls out.

At the moment i am trying to put him onto haylage and he isnt taking to it at all, i was told that this would put weight on him but he just spits it out, i try and mix hay into it to try and start him on it but he isnt insterested..He has also weeing more through the day since i put him on this.

Lastly he is fully uptodate with being wormed.

CAN ANYONE HELP ME???

Thanks,

Kelly
