OK the vet has come and gone. "Thor", had his teeth floated and checked out with a generally good health bill...just need to get his weight up. Vet was pleased with how much he has improved in the 10 days we have had him. Said to up his regular feed, drop the sweet feed and add a lot more corn oil to his diet. He got wormed as well as an injection to help boost his immunity resistance....so aside from still being a little groggy..he's good to go.
"Venus" - looks like the rain rot is clearing up, but because her coat is so dirty and matted...Doc gave the OK to heat the garage and move her in to give her a thourough bath...said to just make sure she's completely dry before we turn her out again...and we're just coming into some warmer days. She got the same feed and injection reccomendations.
Vet feels, in a few months they won't even look like the same horses and is looking forward to coming back to see their progress.
Since we had the vet out for a farm call anyway, we also got all our Alpine does blood draws for our annual CAE testing as well.
Just LOVE knowing all my 4-legged children are healthy and coming along :)
