    Well Callie is currently getting the 24/7 hay and a small handfull of Equine senior in the morning and the evening. I did see Jack try and get pushy over the hay but Callie put him in his place. I also added a salt/trace mineral block in there with them.
    From what I know of her Callie gets really grumpy with geldings when she's in season, she keeps them away, so I'm hoping that she didn't get bred by Jack.

    Glad to hear that she's getting a nice rounded diet :)

    I hope, too, that he didn't breed her.

    Well I took Callie to the vet yesterday because I noticed that she was limping on her front left. The vet looked her over and told me that she was foundering. Because of her physical state she wasn't a candidate for surgery to try and correct the founder, not to mention that it would be a long and very painful recouperation with no garauntee that she would ever be sound again. I had to make the hard descision to put her down. Callie was eauthanised early yesterday morning and now is in a better place.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I do think that however hard it was, you made the right decision, given your girl's current health and condition.
