I have been stuffing it as full as I can, around noon. My BO said its been empty by morning chores so she just throws him some in his stall, then I fill it again when I get out. It's the 1.5 inch holes and the regular size hay net.
I think it takes him two-three hours to eat his hay normally, but I could be wrong on that lol.
This is also his only form of entertainment aside from the hour-two I have him out for leg cleaning, hand walking an grooming. He has not touched his likit.
I bought it at Masterfeeds in Regina.. Err.. Cowtown I guess they call it now lol. It's about 20$ more than it retails on the companies website. :( Posted via Mobile Device
The vet was out today- she said she is very pleased with how his leg is looking, and suprised it is doing so well. He will get his last dose of penicillin tonight when I get out after work, and he had his last dose of bute this morning. I need to keep wrapping and cleaning for at least another week. He can also be turned out for a short amount of time, so we will give him some arena time tonight and see how he does.
I am so happy the vet is pleased with it. My uncle wasn't sure he would be sound after all this, but I think Walter will pull through really well. He has been an excellent patient!
I think we are going to have a big dig day and try to clear some snow out of his paddock, so hopefully he doesnt have this happen again soon.
The vet was out because the 2 year old app filly who lives in the pen next to Walter with another gelding, did the same thing, to the same leg this morning. Too much snow! Ugh! They were able to get her stitched, and I'm hoping she pulls through the same. I'm sure my BO is feeling a little stressed- this is her filly that was hurt, and she was very upset when Walter did it on Thursday. Just a bad few days. :(
Hunter- Walter still hasn't touched the Likit lol. Looks brand spankin' new still.
