Horses stuck fat

Postby Naz » November 8th, 2018, 11:35 am

Does anyone know if there's an environmental cause to this (i.e. feeding them more than they can eat or more than they need for too long or something) or if it's genetic, or if it's just a bug of some kind? I have a few horses who need too much food for energy to get anywhere lower than very fat.

If they're in meadows and grass is giving too much energy, I'd recommend putting them in a barn if you can afford one. You can then lower their feed to 95% and they should slowly return to normal weight.

If it is just a question of overeating, and you don't want to buy a barn, you can also mow down your pasture so they don't get that much grass.
The amount of food they need depends on horse's size, if they're in training or not, and also genetic. And I've also heard about a bug that made horses stuck in one end of the thin-fat scale regardless of what they were being fed, and I've no idea if it was fixed or not.

I've noticed that bigger horses seem to breed more food... Just some horses always need more than 100% to have enough energy, that's why I was wondering if it was a bug... It's frustrating because a horse can have really nice stats but the fact that it's not at a good weight means it'll probably be at a disadvantage in competitions

Can you link the horses? There's a known bug but it could also be what you feed, if i can check them out I might be able to answer :)

But why can't you feed them more than 100%? Most of mine are on a bit over 100%, I don't find that neither odd nor inconvenient. Those in training usually eat around 105% or more, and that's just fine.
Hotter horses need more food than colder blood ones. Like, Arabians, TBs and such need more to keep in shape. Ponies need less (in proportion of their size).
