She is really cute. I am concerned tho that you do not have the resources to properly care for her if you don't have the $$ for this or that.....I know you didn't want to hear negatives, but......She has been with a stallion, so she needs to be palpated. Not when you get the $$, ASAP. OTherwise, you will end up to late to lute her.

I also DO NOT agree with Drum Runner and her rotational dewormer. That is not recommended so much anymore. Do the power pack, then do fecals every 3 months. Costs about the same as the wormer and you know what you are dealing with. Many times you don't even need to worm.

Well the vet explained it to me at the time as the foal being absorbed, I was consufed after I gave her all the shots and the vet came and checked her and I asked if she would need surgery or any such thing and she said no the fetus had been absorbed, but I was very upset so maybe the vet thought absorbed would be a more sensitive word to use then saying it was aborted... but who knows, I'm not a vet I just did what she told me to do. :-/

@Twilight - a lot of people still use absorbed. I use humans miscarrying/aborting at anytime during a pregnancy the same as with a horse. Same idea, different size scale.

Kayla - your best bet is to call and discuss that with your vet.

This was awhile back but it was $35 a shot and I had to give her one shot a week for 4 weeks. After all was said and done I had paid about $350 for the shots and 2 farm calls to have her ultrasound my filly. If you have a trailer and can take her to the vet that will save you a lot of money, sadly I didn't have a trailer at the time so I had to pay $75 alone just to have her come out...

She is very very VERY straight through the stifle. This conformation can result in a stifle that pops our of place. I find her weak through the loin and a bit back at the knee. Her shoulder is upright and the angle at point of shoulder is narrow.. a wider angle is more desirable. Her hocks and knees are low to the ground which is good and she looks to have large, roomy hocks which will help considering the over straight hind leg conformation.

Her neck is a bit short.. head a bit large.. indicating a life of less than adequate feed.. though with the over all condition I would say she has good quantity of feed. She lacks quality and cannot get enough nutrition from the hay and grain she is getting.
