Feed Change, Milton Joins the Senior Set, What’s In The Feed Scoop, Summer 2020
Lucky enough to have a horse.
Awareness of the outside world (& friend brag). Photo guru Meg McKinney was hired to take the photos of the Montgomery mural in this article, Alabama News Center: Black Lives Matter murals paint Alabama in a different light this 4th of July.

In the process of switching Milton to the senior feed that Rodney is on. Switch is official, just feeding out the last bag, which of course takes longer and longer as you feed less and less of the old feed. Zeno’s feed scoop.
Rodney’s feed. ProElite Senior.
Milton’s old feed. ProElite Performance.
The more I fed, the more I wondered why we bothered with two bags. Looked awfully similar to me.
Beet pulp, 17% -> 16%, close enough
Protein, 12% -> 14%, not crazy about this but his dinner scoop is small
Don’t see any deal breakers. Single bag it is. Let’s see how long that lasts. One way or another we always seem to end up back with separate bags. *Side note, Previous Horse & Matilda got veg oil as supplement for years. Did great. These two not so much. Weird.
The rest of dinner is the same, mostly:
Cosequin for both
Cimetidine for Milton [Annoying Shortages]
Sand-Aid, although haven’t feed in a while. Keeping boats unrocked.
Treat. Not shopping as often = less fresh fruit. I’ve gotten out of the habit of a tossing in an apple or carrot. Don’t worry, they get plenty of carrots & cookies from the cookie dispensary. (Not me, I’m the buzzkill. I insist on work for treats.)
Stay safe. Stay sane,
