Close on weight

Post by weavs150 » Tue Jun 28, 2022 7:57 pm

My kids 4h project are going too close on weight. We need to start walking daily to prepare for the show. How much weight loss happens from 10-15 minutes of exercise daily?

What do you mean “close on weight”? Too light or too heavy?

If you can find Paylean and it is not banned at your show it will significantly improve growth rate.
