Question
hello sir, may i know why weight gain a good sign in horses?

Answer
hi   well if a horse is gaining weight all the time that means that the system is doing well and that means that the horse is in excellent health. loosing weight means that someting is not in working order, so you would need to have a vet check out the horse. thanks ED HESS

Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
