*sigh* it would be so much easier if I could just show you guys pictures xD
Thanks for all of the information guys. Like I said, I'm most likely just being an over protective owner xD funny, I've been working with Sour for years but now that she's mine (which really isnt much different at all except for that I have a piece of paper) I'm worrying about everything.
I'll look into the flax seeds when I go to the store later. Right now, any penny that I can save is great xD
I guess I'll just add the flax seed to her diet (how much do I give her?)and switch her over to the Ziggs Costal hay instead of the alfalfa/timothy hay. If she doesnt look any better in a week or so, I could just give her about 1/4 of a pound of the rice bran.
You're probably right about losing muscle though- all of the places that I'm seeing 'weight loss' in are areas that had built up a lot of muscle with lunging and driving. I guess I'm just not used to seeing awkward, weak looking Sour xD she's rather funny looking. Ah well, hopefully she'll be back in good shape soon. Honor loves the little bit of exercise that she's getting with Sour anyways.
I'm having a hard time figuring out how much to exercise her and how quickly to progress her though. I'm just letting Honor hack along besides us when I hook Sour up to go for a drive (only at a walk) but I'm worried about overexherting her. At the same time it doesnt seem like enough to just drive around for 15-30 minutes so...not too sure xD
Verona, thanks for adding all of that! Very interesting to see the ratios. I guess I'll just compare prices and see what I can find. I might start her on oil then change to seeds. I'm also looking at the possibility of adding some biotin to her diet too, to help with her overall condition
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
