Weight Gain- The Good Kind

While Chance’s hind-end is still sunken, especially on the right side, he is looking much better than he did almost a year ago.  In the last year, he has gained a significant amount of weight (and still needs to keep gaining) and muscle mass.  This was achieved by upping his feed to 4 quarts and adding hay stretcher with each meal, along with Chance walking up and down small hills during the day.
