A weighted average multiplies each data point by an arbitrary 'weight' and divides by the sum of the weights. Your everyday garden variety average, or arithmetic mean, is actually a special case of a weighted average, except all the weights are equal to 1. Selection of weights are largely arbitrar…y but generally based on sound reasoning (e.g. relative population sizes). As another example, let's say you have 5 reviewers of a product giving their overall satisfaction rating. The scores are 9, 7, 6, 7, 3. However you have a very high regard for Reviewer 1 so you assign her a weight of 15 (and the others remain at weight=1). The average score is (9+7+6+7+3)/5=6.4 The weighted average score is (15*9+7+6+7+3)/(15+4)=8.3 The weighted average is much closer to Review 1's opinion due to your weighting decision. The weight is often NOT arbitrary as in the above example. If a bank wants to know the average interest rate for its portfolio, the weight is the principal balance of each loan. If there are only two loans, one for $999,990 at 6% and one for $10 at 12%, the AVERAGE RATE is 9% [(6 + 12)/2]. However, the weighted average rate is only 6.00006% [(((.06*999990)+(.12*10))/1000000)]. (MORE)

Depends on what they race. Most sprinters weight no more then a thousand pounds to 1500 pounds because they want a fast, light horse with quick acceleration since the break is the most important part of the race.

Long distance runners are about 1500 to 2000 pounds so they have the lung capacity to go further.

This can be simple or very complex. First off, why is the horse underweight? There are many factors that can cause weight loss. Before you do anything, have a vet check your horse to make sure there are no health issues that need to be addressed. It could be parasites, bad teeth, or infection to nam…e a few. Once it has been established that your horse is in good health and is not in pain you can move on to other possiblities. Some horses, just like people, can eat large amounts of food and not gain weight. Discuss with your vet what feeding program the horse is on and what changes can be made to his diet to increase his weight. There are supplements that can help maintain body weight and there are some that can help his appetite to encourage him to eat more. Make sure he is not lacking some essential vitamin or mineral that could be keeping his weight down. A good way to put weight on a horse without making him too 'hot' is beet pulp. It can be fed wet or dry and it doesn't add to much protein to his diet. And a good equine senior feed is a very good way to pick up a horse's weight. If you plan to change your horse's diet do so gradually. Horses are very sensitive to change. Do this slowly, over a period of weeks or a couple of months if the change is drastic. And last of all, examine the horse's immediate environment. If he is being chased off his feed by a more dominant pasture mate, or being bullied by another horse it may be best to separate them.
