Jo is thriving.

We suspect that Hermione is producing enough milk to keep the filly well fed, and that the formula we’re providing is just a nice dessert. A week ago, we dropped down to five daily feedings. Today, we lowered that to four. Within a week, we’re going to stop supplementing altogether unless we see some indication that Jo needs the additional nourishment.

Exciting? Definitely. But it’s also terribly scary. What if we’re moving too fast? What if Jo goes hungry or loses weight? What if we’re making the wrong decision?
