Hi Loosie. I cannot get any grass/timothy hay at this time of the year. We are coming out of winter, and there is none to be found...I have already advertised. I did speak to the local nutritionist, and I had run an ad, saying I was even willing to trade my alfalfa for timothy/grass hay, but she advised keeping the alfalfa because the sugar starches are likely lower than in anything else I may be able to find in our area. I still have about 90 bales that I need to use up. I feed the alfalfa in limited amounts, and they were eating through 3/4" mesh netting for a good portion of the winter. I need to use what I have. In the Fall, I definitely WILL be searching for some nice timothy or grass type hay. I have been given a couple of names to call, and will try to get my name on their "list" for Fall hay.
I will share the xrays here when I get them back, along with the official written results. I have started them all on MagRestore as well.
What I am wondering, is he seems to have bruising on his heel bulbs, and I am wondering what the cause of that would be? I forgot to ask the vet.
These comparison shots aren't the best, as the angles are a little different and on one, his foot seems shadowed underneath because of the space between boards being right at the edge of his foot, so it too looks wonky. I am hoping they will help though, in showing some progress. First photos were April 13, 2013, the second pic was May 4, 2013. (21 days)
