    Thumbs up APHA rescue mare

    I bought this mare from an individual on May 9th. She was skin and bones, had rain rot so horrible that her hair was coming out in chunks, leaving her bald. She has an old proud flesh wound on her rear ankle that we have been working readily to help with the vet. She had an abscess in her front right hoof, and a rock lodged in her front left that had been left in so long it had created a "crater" and her hoof had grown over it. The first few pictures are to show what she looked like 15 minutes after stepping off the trailer. The last pictures were taken on 8/19. They aren't perfect pictures as I tried to get her squared, and then get back to take a picture before she moved. Hopefully I can add some correct pictures with the help of someone this weekend if these aren't good enough to critique.

    She looks great, good job! Is she sounds now that you've taken care of most of her issues?

    Yes! I was ecstatic after all the issues she had that she ended up sound. The vet said there was a high chance of her being sound for riding once she gets conditioned and in shape. Her hind ankle rolled horribly bad when I first got her, but I've noticed a huge improvement of the way she moves on it now! I'm a proud mama! :)

    She's beautiful, nice job with her! Though she looks a little fat in one picture. XD

    Good job and I'm glad there are people out there like you!

    I don't think she's too fat-after being starved, she deserves to have a bit of padding!

    I'm currently starting her on a light exercise schedule. Keeping her on mostly a hill pasture to help her strengthen her topline, and then she get's lunged twice a day 10 minutes each time. She still likes a little ways to go on her topline but she's coming along great. :)

    I don't think she is fat at all. You can still see her figure and a nice fat line. She's beautiful, good on you for saving her life =]
