    Well the vet for sure will be out before the end of August as she needs more blood drawn by then. But the last results showed her organs were all functioning perfectly so I'm really thinking it's just the heat, flies, or the fact the horses she was in with this last week. I feel her over every single day, I'm very paranoid about her weight so I notice immediately when she looses even one pound. She's in a different paddock now and if her weight goes back up then I know it was just the horses she was with wouldn't let her eat. She has never kicked another horse and won't. Sometimes I wish she would grow some balls and stand up for herself lol.

    She's also been started on flax seed oil so I'm hoping that will help a bit. She could also be in that stage of work where she has lost a bit of fat as she's building muscle too, who knows, it's only been two days with probably only like 5 lbs lost lol so I may be getting worried for nothing.

    Poppy - if Lizzy is losing weight, you might try mixing in a little beet pulp, it's a trick a lot of Amish guys use in the winters to put a little extra on thier horses.

    Failbhe - yes, my wife is very supportive of my love of horses. She didn't grow up around horses like I did, but she's an all around animal lover. And after seeing me with horses, she sees how much it means to me and how much I enjoy it. And I'm sure that once I get her riding Mellzy (once she's broke) I'll end up buying her a horse too.

    I'm from Wisconsin!!! Just moved to MN last year haha.

    Edit: I can't keep up!!! Ok WIRider - Lizzy is a special case haha, so right now I'm following the vet but beet pulp is on the list of things to try next. She's on 8 lbs of Safechoice a day so I would like to cut that back before I add more fillers like beet pulp. But thank you for the tip. It's not very economical to feed so much complete feed so beet pulp may become my friend this winter.

    Right now Kevin's on this kick where he's convinced that we're going to buy him a Clydesdale (just to ride) and name it Bucky or Bitey. :P I'm trying to persuade him otherwise... not that Clydes aren't lovely horses, but I'm not sure if I want one in my little pasture!!!

    So apparently Kevin is rich if he wants to have a clyde just to ride. Those things eat as much 3 haffies. Just get him a big haffy gelding.

    Oh no, no haffys or clydes for him! I vote for the little minis to pull him around. I have got to say I would absolutely die laughing if I ever saw Kevin in a little cart being pulled around by minis.

    I love clydes, but I am really really afraid of driving !

    Aw why are you afraid of driving?
        07-27-2012, 11:26 AM
    LOL - I wasn't sure if I was going to teach them to drive or not (those carts are expensive!!!) but that settles it - the mental image of Kevin getting toted around by a fat little mini is just too funny!!!
