Sorry I haven't been on he forums much.He's looks great, I can't wait til mine is that size. Im a firm believer that diet plays a huge roll in how they grow and come along and I try to provide as natural a diet as possible. I'm super curious about his diet and how you feed him, If you don't mind me asking, You said his diet is 90% grass, what do u give for the other 10%? and is there a schedule u use? My climate @ the moment is a bit different then yours and requires my guy to b inside from around October to April-may, so there is no grazing time those months but I want to provide him w as natural a diet as possible so during the summer months when he able to be outside full time I spend my time picking things, weeds, flowers, leaves, whatever I have available, I then dehydrate some of it and bag up to b used as a "salad topper" and the rest I use a food processor and chop it into purée and freeze it in cubes, this way he is still getting his "summer" diet in the winter months as well. He grazes all day during the summer months so his grass intake is probably about 90% in the summer but in the winter I give hay because the grass isn't available and it's usually half hay half defrosted weed cubes. I do feed mazuri twice weekly but never alone, it's usually mixed w his hay. I am planning to move this fall to a climate where he can be outside full time year round, so he will b able to graze and his diet be majority grass/grazing, this is 1 the reasons why I'm curious about how and what you give the other 10%. (And well my 2nd reason is your guy looks spectacular so it's apparently working well for ya)
Correct he is a sibling to tuffSheldon looks great, standing nice and tall! Been looking on your threads but don't see a recent length and weight for this guy? He was hatched in '11?
