Recipe For A Rehab

- One half pound Senior Equine pellets
- One half pound Rice Bran
- One pound "All-In-One"
- One scoop "Focus Weight Gain" supplement
- Two scoops antibiotics
- One scoop "Source" equine supplement

Skinny horses = a lot of work. This is the recipe for what goes in Victor's bucket every night. He gets this after I've cleaned his stall and he's had fun running around one of the round pens. He loves to roll in the sand which alarms me to no end because I'm afraid he's going to bonk his face. So he rolls and I stand there screaming, "Watch your face, watch your face!" This horse thing has basically taken over my life. I go straight to the barn every night and generally don't get home until after 8:30.

Which I'm going to use as my excuse for being such a lax blogger.

As opposed to the fact that I haven't gotten around to paying the DSL bill so no Internet access at home right now.

But there has been knitting. Really. I've finished another pair of little person socks and have started on a third pair. Speaking of which, Norma has started a ring for anyone interested in making little people socks for charity. It's called "Magic 28" because the pattern she wrote for it consists of multiples of 28. Or maybe it's numbers that add up to 28. Anyway, the link is over in the sidebar.

I'm tired. Really.

    Do they make rat hats for horses? Cause I'm thinking your boy could use one.

    *hugs*

    Sounds like a lot of work. Good thing Victor has someone like you to love him back to good health! I hope you are remembering to take some care of yourself through all this.. ya know, like sleeping?

    Big hugs and good luck! I can't wait to see an 'after' picture.

    My grandfather was a trainer. Feeling for you and truly understanding the amount of work.

    Go to bed.

    You are such a good person to be taking such wonderful care of Victor! He is one lucky horse.

    Don't you just love those Magic 28 socks? So quick and easy.

    Sleep sleep! Victor needs you more than we do (though, we like hearing about V!) :)

    Have a good weekend :)

    We are about to enter into the world of goat- and pig-ownership and I have a feeling we'll be spending a lot of time in the barn...

    Glad your horse has found a happy home!
