 doing nothing (well, keeping warm I guess) and he is just barely at a

 and before anyone asks <G> yes, he has been floated and wormed :)

About 35% of your concentrate is fat (oil). That's a pretty big number,
especially considering that there is probably another 5-8% fat in the grain.
And then the FFAs from the hay. 

This is really interesting to me. Describe your horse and his behavior and
energy level again for us if you would. Also body condition. This is a genuine
fat loading diet.
