Here's a few pictures of the mare and owner. Her name is Alex, and the mare is named Fudge.

I don't know how old the photos are but maybe if she fed that horse some food she would be a lot healthier. The mare looks emaciated in those photos.

In that first photo that mare is beyond thin.

Second photo is not much better. And she is being raced?

She's not emaciated. She'd an extremely hard keeper. She's a pot-belly in person. Just as an appendix, she seems to carry more traits of a thoroughbred than her quarter horse side. She's a very nice well fed mare, not emaciated at all. The only one who is really 'emaciated' is three year old they have who cribs constantly. They didn't know why he was loosing weight until they caught him cribbing. Now they have a cribbing collar for him.

The first photo was taken today, the mare hasn't been eating in a little over a week. They thought she was colicing, but it turned to be EPM. They were told that's probably why she wasn't eating.

That actually is an EPM symptom. Not wanting to eat and lethargy.

Ahh, that might be why her flanks were drawing up. I've never seen her thin in the neck and shoulders like that picture. It seems like a considerable amount of weight in a week though...hard keeper for ya?

Lol, no. That's not why she is so under muscled and skinny. That has been going on for months. The not eating is from EPM.

My friend had a tb that was a barrelrunner and he was a hard to keep horse. He never looked that under muscled in the neck and his ribs never stuck out like that and he was up over 16hands.

Id also say she was a bit wormy if she had a pot belly.

Maybe I'm not sure. They take very well care of their horses. Especially the ones worked. She honestly never looked bad. Not even in person. Let me see if I can get a picture of her body without tack.

If she went from lookin like she did in the two last pictures to the first ones- id have gotten ahold of the vet way back-- I aint a vet- and this is just my opinion but it looks like she might have had EPM for longer than just a week- or maybe somethin else? I don't know-- I just know that she doesnt look like a hard keeper.. well the first of the last picture anyway.. that very last one I can see her topline hip and neck muscles starting to diminish..
