I'll most likely have the vet out soon. I can't do it right away because I'm having some health problems of my own that I believe are a bit more urgent, sadly
Did they use her for driving? White spots might be from badly-fitted harness. Get her feet trimmed-maybe your horseshoer can tell you what's going on w/her hooves. Give her plenty of hay & take her to your regular place once she/s recovering. Go to your library for a book about hoof care and/or study about it online. AS always, few people take care of our things as we would. Always good to check how things are going.
They -did- use her to plow their field last spring/early summer (Or something) but they only used her like.. 2-3 times I believe. They gave me money off my board to use her, and she really enjoyed it! She loved being next to her boyfriend (Belgian she goes nuts for.. LOL) hehe. I do not know anything about harness fit so I just figured they must know what they're doing. I know, I know.. Bad.
But her weight appears good to me, no visible ribs, nothing sticking out, as far as I'm concerned. Her mane is VERY full, but one side is super choppy.. Short tail at the bottom, no rubbing at the top.. And honestly, she's been muddier at my own house LOL. She's got a THICK winter coat so it's not hard for her to get tangled
I was on vacation (Out of country) nearly every other week, and when I got back home it would be pack, talk to people about my Thoroughbred (New horse w/ issues, my priority), pay people for taking care of all my animals, buy supplements/pay vet bills.. and since I've left her with these amish for so many winters now and have never had a problem.. I figured she would be fine again. Lesson learned, time to move on, right?
Actually.. At one point, I was going to sell her, and the Amish man who usually takes care of her told me it'll be really sad for him to see her go, and if he had the space, he would gladly buy her, and offered to make my board even cheaper.. LOL. I've spent a lot of time with this family, and I know they're good people. They told me it had been a rough winter when I went to pick her up.
