Lol, could've sworn she was about to burst.....but her age and having had several babies explains the rather swayed back.
About putting everything in her foal, friend of mine had a broodie who would founder when not in foal or nursing....she was kept preggers....and popped out one champion after another, regardless of which stallion she was bred to.

No way!!!!!!!!!
Who did it, the vet?

Yes. Its a vet we have used for several years. The deceiving part is although he looks good in picture he is easily palpated. His ribs are very easy to fill with very minimal fat. He has a good fleshy coat that covers a lot of his bonier places so in pictures he looks good. He was 22yo old in this picture. Now pushing 24yo and he is now a 6 on the henneke scale.

*shakes head* ...I would have put him close to 4, although he has kind if a heavier head, and I was thinking that he was on the lean side.
Looking great on the recent pic
