45 Days Later.
Can we just say "wow?" At the start of this trial, Ghostly Spaniard had a dull coat, no top line, and did not want to put on weight. He looked lethargic and sad. I told our feed rep at Tribute Equine Nutrition my dilemma and he immediately went to work on a plan.
The plan he developed was simple:
We followed this plan for the 45 days but reduced the hay since he is turned out so much. We did provide up to 3 flakes of alfalfa a day while he was in his stall. We also put him on a Tough as Nails hoof supplement since his feet coming off the track were not in the best condition.
We also started riding him to help build his top line. He felt so good he started running around in his pasture, and we knew then we needed to get on him and get him working. He loves work, and is very happy every time you take him out for a ride.
I really cannot believe it is the same horse. He is happy, has a spark in his eye, and is a complete sweetheart. If you are interested in adopting Ghostly Spaniard, please follow this link: http://www.thehorserescue.org/ghostly-spaniard.html
