My loanee has just let me know that my cob is losing weight. She's really worried that he is getting too skinny. He has navicular and is prone to laminitis so is kept in a bareish paddock. He is overdue to have his teeth done (by about a month) and I have suggested a worm count to check. He's well rugged up and is out at night while coming in for a haynet during the day. He's on a scoop of Happy Hoof and Protexin to help balance his diet. He isnt stressed. He has some strange red warty things on his "man bits" (!!). I wonder if he might have a virus. Vet coming out tomorrow to check and probably take bloods.

Thoughts please.

My pony is in a similar situation at the moment apart from the red warty things! i posted in stable yard if your interested, i put most of it down to the bad weather and lack of grass, sounds like your doing the right checks, hope you work it out
