    Quit that long ago. She couldn't keep weight when off it & I had to feed by drenching her 2x a day. She didn't want the high protein hay & only some of the hard feed. She preferred to just lazily graze.
    I let her just be skinny & hoped she'd live.
    Frankly, I thought I would have to put her down over winter. But she never got weak or anything.

    And again, as August came, she lost weight. Threw the medicine cabinet at her. Has helped some until now, seems like I'll have to euthanize her soon.

    Been having to lift her to get her to stand.
    Ate some grain today, though.

    Eating hay, saw her get up on her own today. Guess she doesn't want to quit yet. But she does have the runs now. :rolleyes:
