I took an old banana and a super ripe pear to the barn to treat my horses. Lilly won't have anything to do with bananas, but she loves a pear. AJ will eat anything, so he was happy to pick up the banana slack. :)
AJ barely has enough time to chew and swallow before he has to start sucking on his tongue.
Good stuff! Lilly wanted the whole pear for herself since she didn't eat any banana, but she had to share.
AJ still looks too skinny to me. He was gaining weight while Lilly was on stall rest during the month of August, but now that she's back out in the pasture with him, he looks to be losing weight. I'm guessing their food is dumped in separate buckets and then the feeder leaves. With Lilly being at the top of the totem pole, I think she's most likely eating her food and his. AJ gets more than she does and eats slower, so without supervision, she probably gets to eat twice.
I had emailed the BO about it, but haven't heard back. When I was out there yesterday I found out from a couple other boarders that he's not living at the farm anymore. It's for sale, and he and his wife were separated, but are now back together and apparently he's living with her somewhere else.
That explains a lot...
So we were all talking about trying to convince the BO to let us run it like a co-op. It's such a nice place and has so much potential, we think we could do a much better job. I don't know if he'll bite or not, but I'm hoping.
I got an appointment with the vet on Thursday morning for fall vaccinations, coggins, and a leg check. Hopefully that all goes well!
