I was looking back through Chrome's old pictures and was shocked to see his big fat apple butt. I hadn't realized how chubby I'd let him get. The first two pictures below were back in December. See the way his hips stick up on either side of his spine? His winter coat makes it look worse than it was, but that is still a fat butt.
This is how he looks now. A smooth round butt and check out those muscles!
I've bumped his feed back up a tiny bit because he'd gotten a bit thinner than I like, but I have to be careful to not let him get fat again. He's eating all the hay he could want though, so he's doing great. :) I still haven't felt any heat in his joints. I don't check everyday anymore. More like every few days or if I've seen him playing really hard. All is good so far. I only have to wait nine more days to measure him again. I'm curious how much he's grown this time.
