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 :(

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 dont 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.
