I have been on a roll lately with the charity type things. I thought it would be good for me to get out of my own head and do something for someone else for a change. I am looking for something that will occupy my brain and that is not easy to do for long. Meanwhile some little things popped up for me to do this weekend.
After I got back from my conference Saturday, I went straight to the Fall Family Cookout thing that my friends hosted at the park. I was really just stopping by as moral support but when I saw how many people were there, I got thrown in to help. I helped with the hotdogs and we served over 1200 people--all for free. It was crazy.
Then Sunday morning, I had delivered two starving horses. My friend Lori asked me to help out a rescue she works with who was being flooded with starving horses, and I said I would. She showed up with two colts early Sunday.
This is Rowdy, a yearling Tennessee Walker. He is sweet but in pretty bad shape.Look at his spine And absolutely no meat on his thighs. He could be a long term project to get the weight on him.
This is Rex. He is a bit of a handful. He is supposedly a yearling stock horse, but based on the length of his tail, I bet he is two years old. He does not look that horrible in these pics, and he is certainly no where near as bad as Rowdy, he still needs a lot of work.
He is much worse than he looks in these pics, but I am confident that just a few weeks of good food will have him in great shape. I will take pics once a week to compare the progress. I am starting them on several small feedings of Equine Senior for easy digestion and all the hay they can eat. In a week or two, I will add in some alfalfa pellets to help as well. I dont want to make too many changes at once.
This could be interesting, I have no idea what I have gotten into but if I know anything, it is how to fatten someone up!
