    Haha everything needs to be soaked for this guy :( I will say as much as I hate to see him have to have a slurpy for meals it is really funny to hear his slurping noises.

    oh yes sorry :(

    Well his urine is alittle to cloudy and dark for me but he passed the pinch test his eyes are very moist.

    Added salt into his food and water yesterday along with gatorade until I could run to the store and it did encourage more drinking but not enough to make his urine a nice light clear color. So then mid day I bought some past and order electrolytes. So this morning I will be doing a half a paste electroyltes and still using salt and gatorade in feed and water. But I have made a second trough of water near his shed so he doesn't have to leave the shade to drink. Maybe that will also encourage him a bit more.

    Hopefully by tomorrow or monday I will see results in his urine to feel e is drinking comfortable enough to sustain. Even though I know both my comfort level for him is way below his comfort level...ahh silly arabian has me in a mess trying to get him all situated :(

    BUT GREAT NEWS ON THE NEW DIET!!!!!!!!
    I used the weight belt today after 2 weeks of feeding him this new feed from bue seal and he has already gained 7 lbs!! Hope this is signs for improvements just hopefully it doesnt change his personality into a mean horse, I can deal with a forward horse just don't need anymore mean :/

    Have a great day everyone and remember if things seem impossible , keep going and make the impossible possible

    Great news on the weight gain.

    I have noticed that in the heat my horse will not drink much until I refresh her water. Once it sits too long in the heat, it must not taste good. It's abnormally hot here (over 35* celcius for multiple days) for us, so I'm keeping a close eye on my horse, too.
