that isnt as bad as I thought it would be.i will call the vet tomorrow and see how much all that will cost
OK. I'm seeing some real problems here. I may have missed something, but how did you come by this horse in the first place? Did you actually purchase her? Do you have other horses? Did you do your homework, so as to know that it constantly costs money, and usually a lot of it, to keep a horse? I did not know she had been kept with stallions, but asked if she might be in foal, because she looked like she might be, from the pictures. Much too late now for a shot to abort her.
I cannot imagine, anyone keeping a filly of her age, let alone her condition, with stallions or colts over about 4 months of age. I hope she is not with stallions/colts now.
And I agree with NdAppy. Horses do not absorb, they abort.
I traded my horse for 3 babies and I only kept 1.she has been with them her whole life im guessing..i don't really know

it didnt start out that way.
:'( I'm sorry to be that person to bring it up after you asked not to but I CAN'T HELP IT!!! You have this super cute little shaggy under developed filly, no job, bfs paying (but not...? because you don't have money for a $30 farrier visit, no money for vet or good feed) your baby needs to grow! She has to be pain free! Well she has the right to be! Im sorry sorry sorry but I can't help it! Try harder! Bag groceries at the supermarket for 7.50 an hour, work four hours and bam you have your first farrier visit. I apologize again and im sorry, im also way younger then you and I honestly feel terrible because its not my place, you didn't ask but I feel everyone has a point in thier own way! Oh and I read the last thread that was closed, only when theres a problem people on here get that intense, wake up sweetie because people see a problem! Mind you no one has the right to be so god**** RUDE about it! Like you rescued the horse its not like you did this to her!! But now fix it! Please fix it! She's so cute and terribly sweet looking. Like omg those eyes!! How could you not want to do everything in your power to lend her a hand and I bet you do! Now do it!! Gosh im sorry! Im all over the place here! She'll be gorgeous.
I do believe I asked people to NOT do that.
Im trying to get help and that can't happen with rude people like you and I DO NOT appreciate you sayin tha GD word on my thread. And believe me,ive been applying for all kinds of jobs...there aint any here.

The girl is trying to do right by the horse and there isn't much sense in bamming her for something she already knows. I've rescued plenty of colts who looked like this and ended up turning into decent horses. Give her a chance, she just got the dang thing!
thank you!! I am trying to fix things. i only posted this thread so it wouldnt be like the last one. Which don't look like that's going to happen.
I came here for help and im not really gettin any. I do not plan on posting anything on here anymore because of all this. I don't wanna argue I jus want help!!!!!
