Chrome In Danger
Chrome and Zep busted through the door to our feed barn, pulled over my 55 gallon drum feed barrel, dragged out a bag of feed and ate approximately 15 pounds of Safechoice between the two of them. This happened at 5:30pm this evening. They are both drinking, eating and pooping so I'm not worried about colic at this point, but I am terrified about founder. So far Chrome doesn't have any heat in his hooves. I can't get close enough to Zep to check his but he isn't walking weird or showing any signs. They are still in danger for the next 72 hours so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I know they are just animals, but if anyone will understand I know it's you guys. I can't lose my boys. I'll keep you updated.
