We don't speak anymore. I didn't even bother asking. I know what she's like, and I've seen what she does to horses, so I can assume. She has polar opposite ideas and skills than I, and we do not mesh in our horsemanship styles. She's very loud, aggressive and a classic "know it all". If it's not her way it's the wrong way. She's turned nice horses into monsters, Flippers, rearers, buckers, biters and kickers. I shouldn't have left him there but I had no choice, and now I'm paying for itWhat does your mom SAY happened? Can you read between the lines?
Feed sounds fine. Don't love the vege oil, I think there are better options. I'm also not concerned about him gaining weight now that he's back with you so would just let it happen on it's own. Honestly he's always appeared on the heavy side to me and while pics and such aren't the greatest he's far from skinny.Okay, I'm putting my feelings aside and making a plan.
How does my feed plan sound? Broken down:
Free choice hay
Grazing 6 hours a day plus hay
One cup of honesty pellets
1 scoop (20cc) of vit/min supplement
One cup of vegetable oil
given at around 4pm for supper
Im going to get a round of omezaperole for him- do I have to go to a vet for that? What brand should I use?
I will hold out calling the vet and wait another month for signs of improvement.
I'll be spending time every night sitting in his stall with him.
He'll be coming along with us when we go to cut fence posts, etc to just stand tied and be around us.
He gets one cup of honesty pellets a day for his supplements, plus a cup of oil for his coat and to help the supplement stick to the grain. When that bag is done I'm switching to hay cubes/pellets.
