vida - i just noticed you asked how long it will take to get him home. its about a 45 minute drive :)
well i got my permit and we are off to get him on sunday :) yay
i gots a couple of questions though - i got some idea of how the people have been feeding him and i have an idea about the lack of condition. he has only been getting wheat bran and pellets mixed with so much water its like a soup. im not sure if its right or not but wouldnt that have less effect than feed mixed properly? im thinking soup is much easier to digest than a hard feed. will i have to wean him off of that or can i go back to normal mixing?
also, as he has been on a very simple diet, im guessing i will have to wean him onto the other things i add to hard feeds like rice bran, cracked lupins etc i usually give a measured jug of 1L (1/4 gallon) of each thing but im thinking of giving him a quarter of that amount for the first week and then go up by quarters over the next few weeks. do you think i need to do it so slowly or not?
im sure i will have a mountain of pics to post on sunday night :) im so excited i can barely take it lol
