“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”I don't know how evident it is, but I am probably one of the least patient people I know by times. Other times, I can hold out forever waiting for what I want, but when it comes to big things that will be big life changes... well, those I want right away.
― Earl Nightingale
It was raining this week when I headed to the farm. That's really nothing new, to be honest - it has been raining on and off for the last three weeks - in fact, we attended three separate wedding events and there was rain at each one! (G and I joked that perhaps we ought to stop attending weddings since we seem to bring the rain with us - even when we leave the province for it!) I went to meet my trimmer for a 4-week follow up on Rex's beginning trim and a look at his thrush. Since he grows pretty slow and Bronwyn seems to, too, we decided to go back to the six week schedule we were on for B and try him at 6 weeks as well. So far so good, though!
I definitely noticed a difference already since we started feeding him the loose mineral and flax/rice bran blend that I bought a month or so ago, through his body. I think it will take a little while longer to get to his feet. Rome was certainly not built in a day and though I have recently heard more "you can make any skinny/unthrifty horse fat in a month" than I can shake a stick at, I feel that if you do it slowly and correctly, it has less implications down the road for the horse. Not that he was thin, but just not thrifty - needing a little something else.
