about 14 ys ago we used to have an old TB mare that was late 20's ( 29? ) and she lost her teeth and I had to soak alfalfa cubes and oats for her 2x per day. and otherwise make a mash out of textured feed with molassis for her. she was a arthritic bony thing. We gave her to some people that have (had ) older race horses.. all TB's who were in the same condition.. so they cooked up mash and alfalfa and oats in bulk every day. The TB's were just a bit to obig for my comfort.. ( not like the QH's are much smaller.. but.. :) )

well.. in a week of this new diet we'll see if he's gaining.

he already stopped loosing.. so that is good. when spring hits.. it may be fine when he has greens to eat and not just hay and the chopped forage..e tc..
