16,000 pounds of hay from Colorado was delivered a few days ago. Twelve huge bales of orchard and four huge bales of alfalfa.
This is one week of pellets for Kiotai and Caramel while they are feeding their foals, Caramel's still yet to be born. Raylan has mare milk replacer powder and the bottles and nipples to supplement his hungry appetite allowing Kiotai to gain some weight.
Danny gets his senior feed (not pictured) and soaked hay pellets and all get their daily pound of Purina Enrich Plus which has 100% of their vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
With the good eats the mares have been getting since arrival on March 10th, Caramel has filled out some and we can see the foal growing in size too. She is showing signs that indicate she may foal any time now. We check on her many times daily but horses prefer to foal where it is quiet so we suspect like most, she will do so in the middle of the night.
Kiotai is loving the daily attention and slowing putting on weight after being out on the Navajo range over the winter. You can see the calm expression on her face while Dee is brushing he.
And our sweet Raylan is growing like a weed. He is chewing on everything as his first few teeth come in. He has in center lower incisors and the uppers should cut through the gum soon. He is a ball of energy, loving to run around the pasture kicking up his heels. His next favorite thing is taking a nap in the sun.We just wanted you to see what your donations do and how you help the horses here. Thank you from all the horses and us at EqWBR.
