Walkin horses are narrow built and she is just a little under weight- if she's stunted its not from lack of proteins so don't throw high protein feed at her- shell develop OCD (of the hocks) and that will stunt her growth more than not enough feed.(too much proteins)
Don't let them frazzle you or work ya up.. if you put 50k into that horse I believe you did! Who is anyone to say you didnt?
Take it with a grain of salt- stomp through the bs and collect the truths.
Are you kidding me? Starving a horse is not abuse? This horse isn't "a little ribby", she is obviously feeling and showing the effects of malnutrition!! She isn't WILLING to give her horse a proper diet. She shouldn't have to wait until Saturday, she needed more food a week after she got her I'd be willing to bet.
OP, would YOU drink that water?! I'm am in no way anal about dumping and refilling water, but that is disgusting. If you don't want to drink it why would she??
If you cannot give her proper feed do the right thing and find her a place that will! You are neglecting that horse, and if you truly love her you will take her out of this situation. There is no shame in giving up if its not working out. Posted via Mobile Device
