Here's what kills me. Someone reported her and I don't blame them. He called the local vet and the vet said she's 250 lbs underweight but really healthy....he told me this and showed me the report and I wanted so badly to find that vet and lay into him! He reccommends grain, free choice hay and worming every 6 weeks. UMMM she already gets free choice hay, grain 3x a day and wormed every 8 weeks!
He asked me what to do I said put her back on gro n win. If she was fat before then it must have worked.
My question is, are all TB's that way? Some feeds work great some don't do anything at all?
I didn't get to look at the feed bag to see what it is but I'm assuming its high in corn and sugars..so my thought was she's a tb, she blinks and burns 1000 calories. This something 200 feed maybe has high starch sugar content so she burns it very quickly. Where as the gro n win is higher in protien and idk vitamins/minerals.. So. Even though she gets 1.5 lbs of gro n win she gains but the 9lbs of whatever feed she burns right through and loses weight.
Does that sound valid? I'm worried she won't live if she doesn't gain quickly..I don't want him to lose her because he absolutely loves her. But I'm more concerned in her well being
