Couple pics of Mr. Butters yesterday. Maybe hes gained some weight in the bottom of his belly. That hind end though is atrocious. My local feed store is all out of alfalfa hay and not sure if they'll get more. Looks like Ill be making the switch to cubes, or buying the compressed bales. Ive looked at the Kalm Ultra feed my farrier suggested and it seems as though Triple Crown Senior is covering every thing that the Kalm Ultra contains. I am considering adding Cool Calories to his feed.

He looks better compared to the pic you posted on the 4th.

For a total crap adventure today.......went to the farm to feed & water the ponies.  Needless to say watering ponies meant going into town to buy 5gal pails with lids, go to the motel & fill pails, then haul out to the farm.  Yup my faucet was frozen & my tick of using the hair dryer didn't work.  So tomorrow I'll repeat the process.

Didn't make it a total waste as I took some pics of my fuzzy wuzzy monsters.  When I get my work done I'll share them with you.

When you consider old, out of condition horses sag in the middle just like old people, he really isn't  in THAT bad a shape. Gravity has a lot to do with the rough topline.

His topline had always been a struggle. His hind end and those ribs are what depresses me.

I think he looks a tiny bit better. 

Ive had that same crap adventure X10! Years ago I was riding at a barn all the way across town from me. The barn owners went on their honeymoon and left me in charge. Their faucets froze and so I hauled water in rubbermaid containers in my backseat all the way to their farm. It was quite the adventure lol.

Its still a lot to do with lack of muscle, and gravity pulling the belly down makes the ribs show more.

There was snow forecast here for overnight. Nary a flake fell anywhere in the area. It wasn't mentioned on the weather spot this morning. You'd think they would be embarrassed.

I know all about dressing warmly. Odie has nothing on me. Besides, I have toe and hand warmers.

Miss Zip is all to keen on selfies.  She is very fuzzy this year.  Her coat wasn't nearly as thick last winter.
