The good news is that Flash is eating all of the tasty treats I'm putting in front of him... even going so far as to lick the feed tub when he's done.
The bad news is that he fills up on the grain, rice bran and oil and then eats a few bites of hay and walks away. I have a horse, that when he is full, isn't interested in food... and he's been like that since he was a baby. He'd rather go grab a nap (a sentiment I can totally understand, by the way).
So now comes the fun job of balancing the treats with the hay. Too much of the treats and the hay goes to waste. Too little and he's not getting the amount of calories I'd like him to be consuming.
What a PITA this is. I'm going to start taking weekly photos so I can see if there is any improvement. I'll post them as I do. Tonight I'll take a "baseline" photo and add it to this blog later. When you see it, please don't report me to the ASPCA. I'm doing everything I can to stop the weight loss and get him back at a healthy weight.
Also, nothing new from the vet. I think the follow-up blood tests are supposed to be in on Monday. Maybe they will tell us something that I have missed...
Here are some pics... hopefully next week I will see some improvement...
