Update on Benji

This beautiful boy came to me in September 2011 in an emaciated condition. He had been through a few hands but no one could seem to get any weight on him. We took him on and he is just amazing now. Benji is a high maintenance horse though and must always have 2 hard feeds per day to keep the weight on him. If he misses a meal he will drop weight. He is 25 years old, 16.2hh and going strong.

  1. Wow, it was such a success. I can say that taking care of horses is not easy, specially if they are suffering the first time you have them. Always have Omeprazole oral paste next time for total care.
