Ive posted before about my struggles with Lola and Im wanting some validation that Im not crazy. Do you see any improvement to her weight? What body score would you put her at? Lola last night: (didnt get grain for about a week, too icy to make it up the driveway to the barn) 2/9: September 2018: Before she shipped north, ~August 2018: I went through and found Lola at her fattest. Im not convinced our feed combination is right right now, but theres so many outside factors its hard to say (stress, lameness, brutal cold, suspected ulcers) Summer 2016: Lola on Ultium/prairie grass hay (tiny amount of grass until she killed it) Lola 1/2017: This picture gives me pause. Shes noticably "fuller" looking than she is now, but her ribs are still visable. She has grown, significantly, since I got her. She was 2 and manourished, got weight on her and shes grown a hand. I actually measured her yesterday and she came in at 14.2, tipping 14.3. She's very narrow and has well sprung ribs. Ive done a complete ulcer treatment (gastric and hindgut ulcers), and will continue her on equishure and nexium for the next 30 days. Shes currently getting 5 lbs of TC Senior, Equishure, nexium, and smartpaks weight gain powder, close to daily. Iowa winters are thwarting my efforts for daily. She has free choice grass hay, and there are three bales out so I have no doubt shes actually getting some now. She needs her teeth done, but theyre not awful. Iowa winters are also thwarting that effort, but vet should be able to come out soon. She sometimes drops a little bit of grain, but thats usually when shes being a looky loo at the horses running around the arena. Shes come in and out of heat in the last month. Since treating for ulcers shes noticably feeling better. Fully sound now. Ive started her in LIGHT work, because her manners were getting to be inexcusable and shes feeling frisky. Full time turnout, 15 minute hand walks, and about 5 minutes of hand jogging or lunging daily. Ive started her on what I call my horsey calisthenics program to try and even her out after being lame for a month (stretches, hand walking, backing in hand). I got a bag of ultium, knowing that she does well on it, and I dont feel like I'm seeing the gains I should be on TC. Upping the volume of TC senior isnt feasible, I cant do twice daily feedings and 5 lbs is the max they recommend for a single feeding. Dont hold me to the 5 lbs measurement, I measured a while back and converted to volume and I think it was 5 lbs but ill weigh again and see. Thoughts? Do you see an improvement? Am I just being impatient?
