Well, Mr. Butterball is not overly pleased with the Optimal feed. He will eat most of it overnight but none in the morning. I try to sweeten the deal with a few slices of carrot (which tend to disappear in a hurry) but, I may just go for some vitamins and minerals in granular form and sprinkle it over the hay. We'll see.

Due to the rather violent return of winter, there will be no round pen time this week. Bummer. The good news is, though, that he is moving on his own. Never above a trot - but still. Every little bit helps.

He remains sound.
