One more thing I forgot to add, by the pictures you can see her mane looks all black, at least for now....:)

I'm not sure what kind of horses you are used to seeing but my Mare never looked underweight in any way, see some earlier posts. And she looks fantastic! Not fat and nice and muscular. I feed her very well and it shows!

You can say that all you want. And I understand that giving birth is a strain. But there is no reason for that much rib to be showing.

This is the earlier post I was referring to.

I saw that. I have also seen that posters horses so her saying your horse looks great means very little to me.

I have nothing against a fit horse. I think a race fit TB is quite nice to look at. This mare is not race fit and those ribs were sticking out more than fit would ever be.

I was really posting about my filly. Do you have any opinions on what color she may be? Also, when would you recommend starting to creep feed her? I have a foal feeder and she is starting to show interest in Mom's hay.

As you can see in the post I posted that you quoted, I said I believe she is dun.

She is bay dun. Her legs will be black after they shed. This is just her foal coat, which is of course, lighter.

Thank you I guess I kind of thought the "peach fuzz" would come off and black would be underneath, but it threw me off her having a black mane and tail with no other black markings.
