How does she look now??

So I am so excited that Lizzy seems to be doing really well. So how much farther do you think she has to go? About 3 weeks ago the vet put her at a 4/9 and the goal is 5/9. How close do you think we are? I know she needs her top line built up and we are slowly working on that. This old lady is really developing muscle and I'm so happy for her.

Below are current pictures taken yesterday. And just a bit of background a year ago when she was seized her body score was 1.5/9 and she was 350 lbs underweight.

I think she is looking pretty good. Needs a top line bad as you mentioned. She is gorgeous and will be stunning when you are done with her!

I'd say you're getting really close to your goal!! She looks fantastic. A bit of a hay belly, maybe, but that's'll come off as she starts working and muscling up. You should see the before and after of our poor old Cy...he still has a hundred or so to put on but the difference is HUGE

Do you have the before pics so we can actually compare? You only have the head pic of her in your album.....

Thank you guys. There's some before pics in a previous thread, they aren't on this computer but let me see if I can find them. I don't have pictures of when she was seized since I didn't get her until 5 months later. That belly of hers has actually gotten smaller lol.

Ok lets see if this works.

Beginning of June when she started to loose weight again

The winter one looks really good! Aww...poor baby. She has definitely come a very long way. Our Cy looked worse than that when we got him....I didn't even ASK for a body condition number on him. Looks like whatever you're doing is definitely working for her.

Other than needing some muscle, she needs good. She's at the weight a lot of under-muscled but adequately fed horses are. Now for that work!

Hehe she works hard. But since she's 19 building muscle is a slow one. But in the last few weeks she has really started filling out. I'm just so excited because people that knew her before don't even recognize her anymore. Her top line is a hard one. Her paddock is flat and there isn't a ton of hills nearby.

The winter one doesn't look bad because she had over 2 inches of fur. It was insanely long and hid everything very well. When she shed out is when we really noticed how bad she was doing.
