This might just be as good as it gets for Lilo.
The ribs are still there, they’re just slowly being covered by her winter coat instead of a layer of fat.
I think her barrel is sticking out just a touch more to each side than it was when she got here, but that could just be me doing some wishful thinking.
She’s just wishing I’d go away and stop taking pictures while she’s eating. Poor mare… she won’t eat if I’m standing too close to her or paying any attention to her. She’ll just stand over her bucket instead, head held high, just waiting for something awful to happen. She will only want attention once the food is gone. I sure wish she could tell me exactly what’s happened to her in the past to make her such a nervous girl.
I’ve done some more diet changes since last time because she’s such a picky eater!
2qts Purina Strategy pellet, 2qt Purina Equine Senior, 2qt pelleted rice bran three times a day.
She stopped eating her food if it had corn oil, Red Cell, Weight Builder, or Source in it. I wonder when she’ll decide she no longer likes Strategy or Senior?
