Poor Hank

Hank is fat.

It happens every year. I don't ride enough in the winter, Hank eats enough in the winter, and the inevitable happens: Fat horse.

Sara has commited him to fat camp. We're starting with 15 minutes of long trotting every day. She'll probably increase that as needed. It's easy to get him back to good weight.

Miss Honky Tonk Girl is fat, too. I'll have to get started on that fat pen as soon as the frost is out of the ground. She is not amused.

Major says 'Join the club' (see my latest post). It's no fun being a 'Good Doer'

Nobody likes fat camp!

Pony puff mare, Charm, is fat too but she came to us that way - fat and out of shape. She's in an exercise program now too.

Poor Hank and Miss Honky!
