you are doing the right thing with regards to feed ,teeth and worming but at 28 years old your horse could have problems that you cant see . you need to contact your vet and ask him to do blood tests etc as this is the only way to find out why weight loss is occuring ,and if anything is found it can be treated accordingly.good luck.

My friend owns a 4 year old filly who use to be in a pasture with cattle who use to lick the cattle mineral block. What is this horse missing, what type of deficiency does this horse have?
