I have rescued a few horses and it all deends on the horse really. One mare Katie came to us literally on deaths doorstep, vet said if she had stayed where we got her from 1 more week she would not have made it. With her it took about 4-5 months and she was fat and sassy.
Another horse we took in Elmo took about 1 year to put all his weight back on.
I will have to post pics when I get home cause the change was really amazing. I will say this there was nothing more rewarding than nursing those 2 horses back to health, even though they where with us a short time due to other serious health issues it was the best and most rewarding experience I have ever had in my 35 years of ownin horses Posted via Mobile Device
