I think he may just choke on ground hay. One thing I always tell people that have a hard keeper is to put a little vegetable oil mixed with their food. You can use the oil out of your deep frier instead of thowing it out. start slow and build it up to about a cup a day. A lot of calores in veg. oil and a horse can take it. If that doesn"t work be ready to dispatch it before it gets bad. You don"t want to make it suffer to long. Hope some oil will help. Good luck.

It is sad to say but the best thing to do is put him away, if he can"t eat hay his body can"t build heat to stay warm, that is the reason they are called hay burners.my 2 cents worth. R.E.Lee

One of the problems with the old guys is when the teeth get bad, eating almost anything affects their digestive system.
My old Palimino held on to 42 but bloated and had to be put down.

Look for some Triple Crown Senior feed. The purina stuff is ok but doesn't offer the greatest nutrition. We switch an old horse of ours from the purina to the triple crown and he put on some weight and hung around an extra couple years.

you would have to moisten it, but it would help.
Might need to get an equine senior made by purina its pellets and moisten it too.

Would having it ground make it too dusty for a horse?
