Dudie & Brownie Weekly Update

We have had a very busy two weeks, so I didn't have a chance to post last week. Here are this week's pictures. Brownie is looking great as usual; I catch myself searching for him among my other horses because he is as healthy looking as all of the others. He is still getting about two pounds of 4-way grain with each feeding of hay to continue a slow weight gain. We have ridden him three times a week or more for the past several weeks. He really likes to run and is very easy to handle. He is so gentle, that when we've had several different families over recently, many of their children have enjoyed riding him (even though they are beginning riders).

Dudie is still improving; he is getting nine pounds of Equine Senior, two to three pounds of 4-way grain, two cups of rice bran, and a full scoop of Amplify (a high-fat weight gain supplement) at each feeding. He is not getting hay right now because he was just stomping on it. He is shedding out very nicely now, though his neck is not. He is much friendlier and really likes to be brushed. We have been letting him out of the round pen to be with the horses after his morning feeding. He seems to like running around with them. They don't seem to be picking on him anymore, so he is obviously much stronger now and able to hold his own.
