Thanks, An update & photos have been posted on the critique board.

Has her attitude changed? Hopefully all is well with her.

Aww poor girl. Hows she doing? Maybe she needs a companion other than another horse since she doesnt seem to do to well with them. Try something smaller. Has she ever been bred before? That could have something to do with it if she has.

She sounds alot like my arabian, is she on the bottom of the toadem pole?? Mine is, and he is just what you've explained, (except for the food part) she may just need time to seattle in.. like I mentioned in the critique board I'd get a Chiropractic out there. I had one come out for my horses and 4 out of 5 of mine had to be adjusted, and what a differents, I would not have never believed it but it was WELL worth the money.

Any updates on how your filly is doing. Have you looked into Reiki? It has helped me figure out and heal issues with new horses in training.

She eats *decent* now but still not great considering the weight she needs to get. If a buddy is in with her and is pushy she'll walk off and wont ask again no matter how many hay piles there are. If I hold her grain she'll take over an hour to finish and keep coming back, I'd love to spend two hours a day holding her bucket containing one 3qt scoop of Triple Crown feed however I can't always. When she is alone, in a smaller paddock, with horses on both joining fence so she isn't to lonely, she wont eat anything really, she'll stand at the fence line and watch other horses, she will not even eat hay if its right where she's standing because that would distract her watching other horses.
She seems less depressed, especially if I can keep her busy with a walk or ride a day - she LOVES riding, very happy, forward moving and willing to please. However she's still a pain when it comes to eating, nothing seems to work but I think we'll get there :)
