Diary of a hard keeper
This is over the course of 5 years. I wish I could give you time periods for all of these, but I've seemed to have lost the date
The first week we owned him
Last year:beginning of the summer after his illness
End of the same summer
2 days ago
He looks great! What is he eating?
Unfortunately we don't have very much grass so he's on a very grain heavy diet in addition to supplements.
Right now he is getting about 1 scoops athelete, 1/2 scoop of sweet feed, and 1/2 scoop pellets, all Purina feeds, though, I have forgotten the specific kinds.
He's also on double cool calories from smartpak and a mix of alfalfa and timothy hay
It seems to be working well. He is gorgeous, by the way.
I'm gathering the 'hard keeper' title is sarcastic??<GG> In most of those pics, he looks a bit chunky. In the 'after illness' pic he looks a good weight. Nice horse!
He's currently on free choice hay. Always has been, including when we first got him, unfortunately his favorite thing to do is pee in it and move it around his stall. In the field he prefers to pick at the tiny amount of grass we do have, which is pathetic. We've tried him on other types of hay and we've gotten the same reaction, even with straight alfalfa. We also tried elevating it in a hay bag, which he likes to hit around his stall. The only time I've seen him actually and eat his hay is when he's being trailered.
