Went out to check on Big Guy at his retirement home and to give him his annual vaccs (which went without a hitch). Weight wise he looks excellent! I also dropped off a 50# bag of Triple Crown Senior only to find his barrel still 2/3rds full when I was expecting it to be about half or less.
When we first moved him out there they were feeding him the same amount that he was getting fed at FR. But for some mysterious reason, my feed barrel wasn’t going down as quickly as it did at FR. I’m not sure what was up with that – either they were feeding more at FR or they are feeding less at the retirement pasture then the 2 scoops I showed them to feed. I don’t feel that FR would have stolen the feed or used it for other purposes or misfed. So it is a just a mystery at this point as to what was going on.
Now he’s on 10 acres of grass and getting fed one scoop a day and not only maintaining but gaining weight. The only difference is the grass access and it’s making all the difference in his level of weight, especially for a senior.
