Dudie & Brownie weekly photos & update

It has been a long time since I have posted. Dudie and Brownie are both doing great. My boys are not riding much since school is in session and it is winter. I have added a vitamin lick/supplement called Equipride in the past month. I am not sure if I see major differences yet or not. I guess we will see in anther month or two.

Dudie is exclusively on complete senior feed by Ranchway, with a little hay thrown in to satisfy his craving for munching. He gets 8 lbs of Senior per feeding. He really has no teeth that function (this we found out after having all the horses teeth floated in October), so he can't get his nutrition from hay anymore. He is so healthy he is on the heavy side now. I am not sure if I want to cut back on the feed quite yet, since he may drop some if we finally get snow this winter. He loves to run with all the other horses in the afternoons, but still gets fed separately in the round pen.

Brownie is on mostly hay with 2 lbs of Ranchway Senior feed to keep his weight up in the cold weather. He is doing very well. When I went out to take pics today, he was so frisky and full of energy that I could hardly get him to stop race dogging around the field....LOL It was hard to get him to stand still enough to get a good picture. I will include the standing one and a silly frisky one. I am so pleased with their looks, it is hard to tell they were so unhealthy when they arrived here in April!
