Twist Update

So far so good. He got nothing to eat until after work because it took me that long to procure some hay. Well to procure it, then have an asthma attack from wrestling it, and then to finally feed it to him.

When I got to the barn, he was out of his stall. This should surprise no one. That is just how Twist is. He had managed to knock a fan down and poop on it, knock over a trash can and poop on it, play with the shavings bag and poop on it--you get the picture. He was very perky, suffice it to say.

I gave him his shot, although I am not convinced he really needed it, and put his hay in his feeder and watched him eat for a while. He did good, and seemed to have no troubles at all. I only gave him about 7-10 pounds because I wanted him to pace himself. It has been five hours and he just got some more. Maybe that will make him go back in his stall and stay there. Silly boy

Let's hope these are good signs that hold out for a while

Glad to hear he is doing well. He is a good boy, even if he did mess up his stall.
