Rick is doing well. We had a rough winter last year, he dropped weight and had persistent colds. I had sent him to the trainers 2011 October and he picked up all sorts of stuff, lost a ton of weight, and struggled through.
He came back beautifully late winter/early spring with lots of vits and minerals and great pasture. Teeth are fine but do need checked again soon, not wormy. This summer was brutal, on hay and sparse pasture and free access minerals, started losing muscle due to being off work. So for the past two months I've been feeding him calf manna, 2 lbs. Once a day, with free access decent hay. He's getting his muscle back and his coat is looking FAB! He has the most luscious mink like coat ever. I love the high vit A content and protein of the manna. Just now getting him back in work, but only riding 1 to 2 times a week at a walk.
So even though I like it, is there something better? Cheaper? Is there a reason I shouldn't feed it?
Thanks so much!
