Gosh, you guys have “skinny” Morgans compared to my Morgan/Friesian cross who, at 15 hands, weighs in at 1260 pounds. His weight is causing his loose stifle issue to become worse – not only is it taxing the joint, he now has to literally swing his stifles even more outward moving forward to accommodate the belly. Keeping him stalled during the day makes his stifle issues worse, and since he’s Morgan – enough said about keeping a grazing muzzle on. Getting him fit is a challenge as well because his stamina is incredible. He’s on a small amount of low-starch vitamin supplement to balance his ration and minimal hay. Unfortunately, rain has been abundant this year so my small acreage is lush.
