Feeding Routine

We have switched up the feeding routine for the Belgians, just a bit. We have added a retractable rope to keep them in their run In's at feeding time. We were feeding Nickel on the right and Jake on the left,letting them wonder when done. Only Nickel was finishing his first and then Jake's.Jake needs to be able to get all of his meals,and Nickel needs no extra.The Big Boys get equal servings of pellet,and grain. Jake gets supplements for weight gain and joint and hip strength, Nickel needs no supplements at this time.The rope is just a visual boundary,the Big Boys could walk through if they so chose.The rope was across, only for about 30 min. tonight, but that is enough for Jake to eat all his dinner, himself.
