Well I too have weight I never had... sprouting saddle bags I am afraid so got to lay off the chocolate cake... but Ralph keeps baking it for me!
How can I resist???
Anyway, Don Jamie is really gaining weight! I have new raw feed, it is not hay, but hay in plastick. It is a little moist and smells like an italian salade!
Far better for Owen's lungs and I do not have to make it wet. I feed them as much as they can eat of it around the clock.
They like it better for they left their hay which I presented along side the new feed the first week.
Then Jamie gets almost two full medium tub trugs (!) of muesly for breeding mares, oak and lineseed-powder. He also gets a lot of carrots, apples and a bucket of pulp (no idea what to call it in English, its a sort of kibble which you put in a bucket with 2/3 water and swells enormously).
Also he gets al sorts of herbs, vitamins and minerals and is dewormed again with verm x.
And he has large branches of willow.
And last, since a month or so, he decided he does like rugs on afterall. Each evening he stands a long side a fleece blanket with blue tartan which we now call his pyajamas.
I put it on and it is very strange for me, that he actually wants this. I put a thin waterresistant rug over it. He then sighs and walks away again to resume eating.
Ino has gained weight, but not enough to my taste, but it is better, my vet says, untill he is clear from the anastatics anyway.
