the last one I had to bury was years ago.. i had to hand dig that one.. thankfully he was a mini. a year or so back I started looking for backhoes as I knew I had a few older animals coming up soon again. I got a woods backhoe for one of my 850's with the specific thought that one day it would be digging some full-horse size holes.
If he goes down in a stall i guess that will be a good time to repalce the wood on that side of the barn after the chainsaw work...
hopefully he will respond to this latest diet supplement. I try to change him slow when adding or subtracting a feed so I don't upset his stomach. maybee in a week I'll see soemthing.
I have a feeling this lil cold snap we got may have had soemthing to do with it. florida has been mostly warm ALL this winter.. though for the last couple weeks we did get some windbreaker weather. at his age.. he may not be likeing the season change as much anymore.. :)
