My advice is to stay at the fence, or preferably, as close to her as possible. She is telling you what she needs from you. I doubt it will go on forever, you did say you just rescued her. But it may go on forever. That is part of the rescue. She needs to know you wont leave her, when she isnt ready. It is up to you to answer her questions. Sometimes I wish I had a window into my rescues past, but I wouldn't be able to take it. So I let them tell tell me, with time. And patience. I have sat for hours with an animal, just looking at me... while I prove I am in it all the way. God bless you for rescuing her. I swear if it weren't for the people like you I encounter, I would just throw in the towel, and call this whole game off. On those days, I think I might, God will remind me of these encounters...and I am back in the game.
There is this stuff called nutri-cal. It is like syrup in a toothpast form. It is what we give the dogs and cats to put weight on for various reasons. But it is pure calories....I have never used it on a horse. I do not even know if they do use it on horses. I have been rescuing cats and dogs for over twenty years. My best friend and I are laying the ground-work to start branching into horse rescue. I have rescued a couple, for one reason or another. My filly I had to rescue from my own family, which sucks. But she is spoiled rotten, now. And she is the best littlle filly ever.
She is gorgeous. Can't wait to see what a lot of love will do.
