New Home for the Eventing Draft

Brego made the big move yesterday to a new facility. He will be in a 7 acre pasture with his best buddy, Hobby, and all the grass the horse can eat. I apologize for the quality of the picture, it was taken with my phone. That gray blob over Brego's (on right) withers is the far fence which is made of stone. It's a good sized pasture!

We'll be cutting back his feed and watching for signs of laminitis due to all that grass, but both horses were so happy, they never raised their heads the entire hour we were fussing over them. The best part: Even though we received more rain this week (another 3 inches!), there was no mud!!!

I know people say horses don't show much emotion in their faces, but the look on Brego's face was that he was very happy and very relieved. It's all worth it!

Now if will only dry out enough to ride! Luckily, I have a dressage lesson on Friday at an indoor so he will get ridden at least once this month!

I was wondering if you feed the high fat diet recommended by Dr. Valentine?
