I do like John's weight...but Romeo needs some help. He has an extended day Freedom Feeder, but he ate a 6''x6'' hole through it. I'm not quite sure how in the world he did it, but I patched it and flipped it over. The company is wonderful about replacing them, but I am hoping this is all the damage he will do and he won't need another one.
Johnny has had his since April of this year, and isn't exactly easy on them, but they are still in fabulous shape:

Granted, they are supposed to be able to move them around like this to get the hay out. Romeo is just a little unhappy about the "diet" situation. I would like him to be about 50-100lbs lighter. I definitely think it would be beneficial to his joints to be a few pounds lighter.
Speaking of joints, I rode Romes twice last week. Both times, he was pretty stiff in the back end, especially the hocks. So, I don't think the MSM and Cosequin are doing enough. Betsy and I decided that this was probably a good time to start him on Polyglycan, and I will let you all know the results. He got his first IV shot on Friday. He gets it once a week for 3 weeks in a row, and then maintenance is 1x a month. He also probably needs chiro/accupuncture, but we live in the middle of no where, and there are none around. I'm trying to hold off on injections until next summer :/
