on a warmer day they are more active and should eat more they might not drink more but you could give them a bath to make sure they are rehydrated.

Horsfields are only awake for around 3 months in the wild, the rest of the time is spent aesivating (hope i spelt that right!!), burrowing underground to escape the extreme heat, and hibernating the rest.
Aim for nice slow growth, around 2-3 grams per month :-) :-)
Hope that helps a little,

Ideally your tort should eat the same amount of weeds as its shell size daily.
