I just wanted to give a report on Mystery's progress. My daughter just called and said she has made a miraculous change, personality wise. She's no longer depressed and despondent. She's prancing and trotting all around the pasture, and nickering when anyone comes out. This is such exciting news for me, and I know she's loving all the attention.
Well, she wasn't so much sulky as depressed and despondent, from being starved for so long, and having no love and attention, and no energy. Thinking about changing feeds now, people are swearing my Safe Choice, and something by Purina that I forgot the name of, and then people are saying that rice bran causes colic. Any response to this?
I will have to look for the Triple Crown, and get her current weight from my daughter. But, she's definently improving.
She has formed a special attachment to my 8 year old grandson, and drops her head each time he approaches her, so he can pet her.
Her current diet is rice bran, and M-G Super 12-8, which we plan to begin feeding something else with higher protein. Her current weight is 920, and she's 15'2. Isn't the average weight for a horse around 1000 lbs? Or is it closer to 1200, what should her weight be, for her size.
