I ride 5 to 6 days a week. And when Twister gets ridden, it's almost never a walk in the park. But seriously my horse is HUGE! He's more fit than he was before but he has a belly like a freaking rhino. I'm going to have to start putting him up at night and only give him a few hrs of turn out a day.

Not just because he's a monster, but because the sweet grass (grass that usually isn't still so sweet in almost freaking July but is because it rains so much!) is making his feet soft and sore and I'm worried he's going to get cresty and try and founder on me. He's never foundered before, but I'm not going to sit around and wait and see if it happens.
Or maybe I should buy a grazing muzzle. I wonder how long it'd take him to lose it? Gah. I have never owned a hard keeper. Even my TB's are easy keepers, even the ones in training. So I don't know what that even feels like to be stuffing as much forage down a horse's gullet as possible. All I know is you can gallop for an hour a day every day and still have a fat pony.
