Weight Gain Update - Week 14

While at the barn yesterday, I realized it's been far too long since I've updated on Echo's weight gain, 8 weeks to be exact. See the last update here.

She's been without some or all of her rice bran pellets for 2 weeks. There's apparently a shortage of rice bran? At least that's what I've been told. Thankfully it doesn't seem she I'd loosing weight without it but she isn't gaining either. Without the grass coming in strong and fast it might be a different story. I know she only gets hand grazed but I'd like to think the 30-45 minutes she gets in a day has SOME impact. 

I apologize she's not the cleanest, I had to do a quick groom since someone was antsy for her dinner. I'm guessing this is the truest example of her with the winter coat being 95% gone. I'm glad I didn't have to see her when she arrived from Texas without some sort of winter coat. Also keeping in mind that since my 6 week update on her weight gain, she's been through her injury and stall rest - something she seems to be handling without too much stress. Thoughts?


  1. There is! No wonder the price went up >:[

  2. She looks great!! Keep up the good work :)

  3. Bouncing back well, keep up the fab work!
