Re: Increasing CP

There's no easy answer to the pergolide question. If you wait to see clear signs it's too late. Talk to your vet about how much of an " insurance" increase during the rise may be warranted. You can plan to lower dose again late winter and retest.

I'm assuming this is weight loss he didn't need. It's important to keep him separated from the other horses long enough to eat his full daily requirement. Another option depending on how large the dry lot is would be to divide the daily hay into nets, one more net than there are horses, and hang these as far apart as possible. Riding him when he's undernourished is a stress and only makes weight gain harder.
