I was suspecting teeth or worms , but it sounds like you have ruled that out. By your original description many possiblilities have been considered and ruled out. It sounds like the old boy still acts/feels OK. It could be just plain old age. I have had hay customers who buy good second and third cutting hay to put/keep weight on horses in the winter. A couple of them tell me they feel it works better (maybe cheaper?) than increasing grain feeding. I"m not sure if this is an option for you in Fla. Beet pulp may help too.

I guess I didnt word that too well. I meant I have had people buy 2nd or 3rd cutting hay instead of/ or to use with 1st cut for horses they want to put /keep weight on. Higher price/higher quality, but some years can be a little dusty no matter how good of a job I do putting it up .

Green grass may do alot for him too. We are still a couple months from that point up here , but in Fla. may be soon?
