I snapped this picture on Easter Sunday.
Scooter is loving all the green grass.
Anyone with an Older Horse knows, there is no secret to keeping an Old Horse healthy it is a combination of things like:
I swear by Purina Equine Senior Feed
good equine dental care
supplements for arthritis
being vigilant of any health problems before they develop into something serious…
and so on.
And…I worry fitfully, obsessively about Scooter’s well being.
Here’s a small snapshot of part of Scooter’s AQHA papers. He’s got some fancy, famous relatives.
Scooter’s genetics play a huge part. He is naturally muscular.
In fact, right now he is in the flabbiest shape he has ever been in during his entire life……I am ashamed to say! except–that makes two of us.
Lately Scooter seemed to be getting burned out on eating his Equine Senior pellets. So I have cut his pellets back and have been indulging him in some 14% sweet feed 2X a day.
I have also been exercising him 2 -3 times a week. Since my schedule has been so crazy the last few weeks, Ive been lunging him for 30 minutes when I cannot take a trail ride.
Hubby still has not built my new round pen.
I am tired of looking at the pipe on the racks he laid out last Fall to build it with. I refuse to put up my panels again….I just took those heavy things down.
Why is it so hard to get husbands to do anything? grrr
