    I'm so happy to be back home in Tennessee, but there are two things I miss about Texas:

    • Riding in short sleeves in the winter (not all the time, but nice when it happens!)
    • Lack of MUD!...

    Check out Triple Crown Senior. High fat, VERY low starch, lots of fiber. They don't have to be "senior" to benefit from it! Awesome feed for weight gain/maintenance without loading them up on carbs.
