What breed is he? & how old?

Percheron X Standardbred 17.3hh Rising 5yo - big heavy muscled/jointed, but still growing/filling into his body size.

Thanks GG.
Got my Feed XL spread sheet back today, and amazingly I had done an almost spot on job with his diet, only a little tweeking with some extra vitamins and minerals and that part will be right.

Just received some feedback from a vet on Rays blood tests. They are indicative of EPSM :cry: .
We now have to give his new diet 6 months to see if there are any improvements in the condition of his muscles, then ascertain whether he can endure any longer periods of exercise, once I build up his stamina.

Hope all goes really well for you.

From what my sister explained is he will again lead a normal life to some extent, but its a long road to that point.

You love him, and he loves you - so all will be great at the end of the day for you both.

Good luck with it all and keep us posted. I would love to know how he progresses.

Cheers
Donna
