I was just thinking how glad I was I had figured his food stuff out and we had finally found something his picky self liked that was working. So much for that! Haha
I will try the handful thing, and if he eats it I will lower the amount slightly. He had already been lowered some while he was on stall rest due to his bone chip, and I was weary of lowering the amount again until he had been in consistent work so that I could see if there were changes. So far its been about 2 weeks and I've noticed slight improvement in muscle and a definite sort of 'lifting' of his grass belly from working in frame, and he's slimmed down a bit .. but more in a healthy manner. Not in a "losing weight all over again" fashion.
I'll also do some research on the Strategy Healthy Choice! Thank you!
