I wasn't helping the stress level at the barn. I stopped eating for three days. The Keeper was worried sick. She tried tempting me with everything that used to be my favorites. I really didn't feel like eating any of them. She has been allowing me out to eat grass on the weekends and I think I should be allowed out to eat grass everyday. So what if we don't have a lot of grass. I want it when I want it. I also have gotten into the habit of stealing chicken feed.
The Keeper had the vet look at me and he declared me healthy. Bummer man! Now the Keeper is not falling for my starving act. We did reach a nice compromise though. When she gives me my sweet feed and hay, she sprinkles a handful of chicken feed on it as a top dressing. Today she actually brought and added some black oil sunflower seeds to the mix. Yummy, Yummy. The vet said feed me what I will eat and I am taking full advantage of that. You should try some sunflower seeds, they are a great summer snack. Happy Trails To You!
