The phrase 'poor doer' is used to desribe any horse or pony who tends to lose weight quite quickly, or needs a lot of supplementary feeding alongside their grazing and forage just to maintain their weight.
Typically we may think of older horses or Thoroughbreds as being 'poor doers', but any horse of any breed, age or use can be a 'poor doer'.
Difficulty maintaining weight can be caused by a variety of reasons including the weather and temperature, stress or poor dentition. It is always important to identify the cause of any sudden weightloss and speak to your vet if you are concerned there could be an underlying health issue.
