Google still wants me to log in:(
Thank you:) Joker is my ďSweetie BoyĒ and he knows thatís his other name, lol
My friendís Cushings horse had hair like you describe ó My Joker has not got to that point yet.
She body clipped him, and had to do that in the spring and again in August:(
Itís great you have the fly sheet because it sounds as if he needs a full nose-to-tail crew cut.
Also, if you would like ďone more thingĒ to do, lollol, Chop up watermelon AND the rind and put it in his feed pan to help cool him down. You can mix it right into his supplements, as long as he likes watermelon:)
The melon and the rind are high in L-Citrulline which is an amino acid that converts to L-Arginine in the body. It may help with muscle waste. I originally started feeding it at the suggestion of my lameness vet to help cool Joker down. When I researched it, was when I discovered it is full of L-Citrulline and the benefits that has in human Type II diabetics.
I just put both of my horses back on chopped (small bite size) melon & rind because of the heat. And boy is it ever sweet, lollol
They are both 1,100 pounds plus. I start them at 1/2 measure cup twice daily and will work that to one full measure cup twice daily.
Technically you can feed your Mini that much, provided it does not give him loose manure:)
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
