We have no idea. She came to us with her right side in very poor shape. The skin on her face looked pushed to the side and she had a healing scar that was 8 inches long. Her right chest and front leg were stiff and lame. Her back was stiff and she never moved faster than a slow walk for the first year with us.
She had enormous knees and tiny teacup feet, so we were worried that her conformation plus injuries would mean she could only be a pasture pet.
After chiro work and lots of good feed and supplements, she has blossomed into such a beautiful girl! And so tall and thick. She has an enormous heart girth. She is still under muscled on her right front, but it continues to improve. Her butt is still a little skinny, and her neck seems too small too, but I noticed yesterday that it has grown too. Is that normal for a young horse, that the butt and neck grow last?
Thanks for all the thoughts and help, everyone! I love this forum and the people on it.
