He has a buddy and they spend their days in the richest pasture as both he and the other gelding are lean types. He is getting hay plus pasture all day, and grain in the evenings. I've doubled his grain as I have doubled his exercise, and I'll need to add in more feed as we go.
They are good buddies, but Nick is getting pushed around a bit, and I have doctored some of the results.
I'll try to get some photos this weekend as we ride. I know you really want to see him in action. He is doing such a great job and I've been keeping a log of his successes and goals.
Here is the "old man".

Woodrow is fat and happy going into winter and he is really enjoying short rides with me, ponying Nick and generally being everyone's favorite elderly equine.
