    Yeah, she's getting a 14% pellet now and good quality hay. We have multiple turn outs but with all the rain this weekend they haven't been used so they can dryout a bit and not tear up the grass that's there. She'll get some out time today to blow off some of that energy. Any thoughts on when she should be turned out into the big pasture (40 acres) with the other horses? We've introduced her to the ones in the barn, though stalls, and of course all the mares just pin their ears back and yell at her, the geldins not so much.

    Great El Paso, how about you? She is QH/mustang cross.

    Dba - I know of an awesome buckskin stud up in Valley View. Was going to breed my mare to him next year but decided to rescue one instead. His registered name is Dial Dolly for Muscle and oh my, they are not lying about the muscle!!!

    She's a nice little filly. I'm doing great! Life's been good I've got the week off until I have to operate on a parrot. That should be interesting seeing as it has something blocking it's digestive track. (I won't talk about it of it grosses any of y'all out)

    You could also soak some beet pulp for her. It's loaded with calories that can help pack on the weight fairly quickly. For my new boy I kept him in the foaling stall overnight before turning him out with my gelding. One squeal and rear, and they were done. I was expecting more from my zealous pony, but he behaved. :)

    Five days until I go get Henny! WOOOO!

    Thanks Kayella, I will check into the beet pulp. I've heard alot about it but have never used it. I'm trying out some flaxeed oil on my mare to help her gain.

    As for turning out the little one, I wouldn't have any problems with my gelding but it's the other 13 I'm worried about.....

    You can talk about it here! We all LOVE birds ...most of us have birds!

    Welcome to the group! I was the hospital manager (I'm an RVT) for a board certified avian vet here...well, until my youngest was born...anyway, and she also did exotics (along with dogs and cats) and it was a blast. I ran all of her anesthesia. Nothing like traching a teeny tiny chameleon! The savannah monitors were my favorite ... I hated drawing blood out of ferrets...they can target poop 6 feet away and hit their mark...the list goes on....I miss it but I don't miss CATS. NO CATS. I left some blood and tears behind at that place (and a piece of my eye) due to cats! Sounds worse than it is - my eye is fine. But it was not my happiest moment!

    My boys were just vaccinated last month! One less thing to worry about! With each rain, the mosquitoes keep coming back with the sauna-like heat. I cannot wait for it to cool down :/
