Thanks Peggysue...

I took your advice and my old fart is back...

He's gone from mister mosey sweety pants with the runny poop and the ribby look to mister I'm in a hurry, don't know where I'm going but can't walk for an instant...don't stop me now! My poop is solid! He even ran me over last night... knocked me right into the stall... (Which is my boy's personality for all the 22 years I've owned him...)

Awww Your welcome I love to hear about succuess no matter who is behind it

I dont' deserve the credit YOU DO!! I just tossed an idea at you and it worked!! You did the hard part whichwas sticking to it and helping him along the way

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

..Old age? He's 25 this year teehee... When he was about 16 he suffered from sand colic and it took a good 2 years to fully recover. I switched to Equine senior feed, and I've had him on it for years. But he last summer he coliced again and after that he would get really runny poop, like water. (he's missing alot of teeth and he really can't eat hay anymore). I could never get him to really look or act healthy. And he was always ribby.

Peggy suggested I put him on Triple Crown senior and supplement with a hay additive, extender (what is that stuff called?)... anyway, been doign that for a couple months now and he's back... obnoxious, stubburn, and hard headed as ever.....

Does the tripple crown stuff cost much more than the equine senior? I have Scooter on Equine Senior but he still lost a bunch of weight this winter. We have upped the ammount but he's not putting much back on. He has the same teeth issue as well.

I want to say the triple crown is really close to the same price... it's around $17 something a bag.
