Well, Rockin' Robbie went for his 2nd official weighing at the vets today. He weighs 54.4kg, which is 8.6kg up from his previous weight of 45.8kg. This is almost a 20% increase in his body weight and vets say condition score a good 2.5 now. And he's grazing and eating his haylage like a proper tiny horse now so I can start cutting back on all the high calorie feeding solutions that got him to remember how to eat again. Thanks go to bread & honey, Build and Glow, Mollichaff Condition, D&H Mare & Youngstock mix, D&H pasture nuts and a dog feed ball! No-nos we met along the way include: Readigrass, Speedibeet, apples, carrots. I still think he may have a mild malabsorption problem but he's sturdy enough now to do 0 to 60 as he legs it away from me at coming in time! And let me tell you, catching 26 inches of determined, healthy pony that doesn't want to be caught is a nightmare!!!! Rock on Rockin' Robbie!
