Dillan&Jake said, I have a 11 year old Thoroughbred. He is pastured 24/7 with plenty hay in the winter. Since I got him he hasn’t gained any weight. He is probably about a 4 on the body scale. He has not lost any weight either. His teeth are fine and he has been dewormed. He gets a small amount of grain once a day.Should I put him on a weight gain supplement or would something like beet pulp work? I want to make sure I am not giving him too much energy and make him crazy. He doesn’t get worked all that often. Any suggestions?

Hello! I just want to ask some questions about your horse. How much grain do you feed him? What kind of grain? How many hands tall is he?
