|Dramatic change most seen in his hips and pelvis area|
We have seen a dramatic change in his demeanor in addition to the weight he is gaining and the muscle rebuilding.
|4-19-15 Ben's intake photo|
He is getting 20 pounds of Dumor Equistages feed a day which means he eats about three bags of feed each week, 17 bags since his arrival. He also gets 15-20 pounds of alfalfa and all the Bermunda hay he wants each day. We also include one pound of Purina's Enrich Plus with provides 100% of his daily nutrients and the very important amino acids that promote muscle rebuilding.
He has been dewormed and on Tuesday will get his feet trimmed again. That same day will will clean his sheath and soon will do his complete dentistry. His dermatitis is gone and you can see how shiny his coat is.
Ben engages us and socializes with the other horses, comes when he is called (especially if we have a bucket in hand) and is far from the depressed horse that arrived on April 19th of this year.
Over the next few weeks we will reduce the pelleted feed and increase the alfalfa so he can get back to a 100% roughage diet once he has bulked out and at a normal weight for his height and age.
We can't thank everyone enough for being part of our family. Through your generous donations and support we have been able to help Ben and many others over the years. See what you have done?
Blessing to you all!
