Yeah, you’ve got a chunk! LOL Our Morgan was only 14.3 hh and had a butt as big as any QH. The old-style, “type-y” UVM Morgans tend towards heft, but he didn’t have any joint problems. I’m sorry to hear your boy is suffering a little. The stall-or-not-stall thing is always a dilemma. I’ve got two boys who puff up whenever they’re in for more than a couple of hours, and one of them is my current hefty boy. I sounds as if you’re doing the best you can under the circumstances. I do keep my big Paint on Recovery EQ Extra Strength because he tends toward soft-tissue injuries and puffing up doesn’t help that. It’s a never-ending battle!
