    Others here, have given you lots of very good advice on feeding this filly. Get her off fescue grass/hay asap. It just isn't good and can be even dangerous. Do a google search and you will get much information.

    I see she is 2 years old. How tall is she? Do you know anything about her sire and dam?

    Only going by the pictures, it is difficult to tell a whole lot, since she has a winter coat. She might be more lean than she looks, under all that coat. If she were in good condition, I don't think she is long backed. I do think she might be a bit straight in the rear. That might look better if she were more muscled.

    Her pasterns look long, but that might be because of hoof length, which I can't really see very well. She definitely toes out on all four feet. She is very narrow in body. Her neck is short and hollow. That tells me at some time, she has been severely malnourished. It will improve with good condition. Can't do much about her head, but once her neck improves, her head will not appear so large. Actually, I think her head is not too large for her body.

    She does appear goose-rumped and bum high, but that could be because of her age at this point. With good care, she could become a cute little pony. I tend to think she will never become horse size. Certainly do not allow anyone to ride her, until she is in perfect condition and well over 3 years old. She needs time to recover from the obvious poor care she has had in the past.

    Is there any chance this filly is bred? Just asking.

    Here is a pic of one of my daughter's little Gypsies, at 2 years and 1 month. While I don't expect your filly to have the same type bone, your little girl should end up looking in as good a condition as this one, with good care and proper feeding.

    right now id say she is around 13hh. All I know about her parents was her dam was 13+hh and her sire was 15.1hh. Im pretty sure she was been malnourished at some point,i feel if she wasnt she would be taller. I've done the string test and it said she would be 14hh..im hoping she can still reach this with the proper care.

    Your daughters horse is beautiful...i love gypsy vanners (:

    When you do go to switch her feed, you need to do so slowly.

    Also get a scale. Feed should be fed by weight not scopes. Not all feed weighs the same.

    She's cute! She reminds me a lot of a filly I rescued years ago, she was also small for her age, I bought her when she was about 10 months old and had her tell she was about 3, in that time she went from about 12 hands to about 13.3 and I decided to sell her because I didn't think she would get big enough. Well little bugger had a late growth spurt and if 15 hands now... she was also very akward looking like your girl but grew up nice.

    As far as her health stuff goes you should have a vet out to check her over, I know it costs a lot but it is worth it to know you have a healthy, happy horse.

    Also if she has been in with a stallion at any point I would get her checked. I had a filly that got in with a stallion just one time and got prego and she was only 1 1/2. I ended up having to give her shots so that she would absorb the foal other wise there was a high chance that having it might kill it and/or her, I still feel bad about it but she was okay in the end, she was just to young to be a mom and so is your girl.

    *cough* It is physically impossible for a fetus of any size to be absorbed. They are aborted.

    The shot is called lute. Please do have her checked before administering any shots. Have her palpated or ultrasounded.

    You are really on the right track to getting this filly looking great! She is going to be a beautiful horse one day. Since finances are tight, instead of depending on getting her a shot, you could just separate her from the stallion . Anyways, I can't wait to see her all shed out in the summer!
