2 weeks down feeding the Purina Outlast now. I'm still giving all three horses one cup of the product per day. Still no real differences. I did notice DC and Demon were leaving behind about half of their hay pellets, so I cut them back. Hoss may have put on a little weight. I took him for a ride this week and lost a notch on his girth. So, the fat horse may be getting fatter.
I'll be taking Hoss and Demon to the Death Valley XP ride. I plan to ride each horse two days. They'll continue to get the Outlast supplement, and I may add it to anything they are fed during the ride days. Since Purina's information indicates they expect it to be fed 3-4 times per day, and they assure users their product is "legal" for competition when fed as directed, it certainly isn't a bad thing. So when they get an additional bran or beet pulp meal, they'll get an extra helping of Outlast.
I have one more 2-for-1 coupon, which will expire on the 29th. I'll have to go redeem it tomorrow. At that point I'll have 3 unopened bags in addition to the half bag or so which I originally opened. At the very least, it last quite a while, at least when fed my way.
Purina has not sent another email yet. It's only been 2 weeks, though, so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.
When we return from Death Valley, I'll be sure to "weigh" Hoss and Demon again, to see if they've changed measurably. At that time we'll be just past 3 weeks and it'll be time for another update.
This post is rather thin, as there's little to say. So, Merry Christmas, ya'll, and the very happiest of New Years.
