Re: Update on Dixie and Dexter...need help with depressed mule!
Hello again...I have no updated information to add. We do not have a local vet that can do blood work at this time. I will be doing blood work in June, hopefully. Just wanted some info on his depression. Like I explained he is an introvert and not very active. Our weather is cold between 20 degrees and 7 right now. May drop lower in the next few days. Farrier was out last week...feet look good no issues. They have plenty of room to walk or run...I did see him buck and kick out today after rolling. He just seems either bored or depressed. I try to spend time with them as much as possible. Petting,talking and grooming. He just seems lost... and goes inside of himself. I have been feeding a few roasted unsalted peanuts to them everyday. Is that okay? I started giving 2000 mg of vitamin D due to the long dark winters, thinking they need it. I received my teff hay analysis today and it was high WSC is 12.9, ESC 11.0, and Starch is 2.4. I have been on the phone with Anderson Hay all morning trying to resolve this problem. Not sure what to do??
Thank you for understanding,
