You have no idea how happy I am to say that Gen seems fine today. He is still not 100% (I normally need two hands and full attention to hand graze him, not one hand while I am posting).
He see to be thoroughly enjoy that I am here so early. In fact, Gen is making very sure to only graze in parts of the barn yard where the other horses can watch him. He is very clearly enjoying the extra doting that comes with not feeling well…hopefully his love of food is stronger than his love of attention because I don’t ever want to go through this again!
