There are several things you can adjust about your Thoroughbred horse’s day-to-day regimen to help it gain and then maintain its weight. Here are some ways to get them healthy.

A significant worm infestation in a Thoroughbred horse can cause a decreased appetite, resulting in weight loss and malnutrition.
Many Thoroughbred horse owners that have a ‘hard keeper’ often find out that they are not feeding the recommended amount for their horse.
Thoroughbreds, especially those that compete or exercise regularly, need extra calories to keep them from losing weight. Their metabolisms are often faster than horses of other breeds.
