200 pounds ish? Her tummy looks good, but she has no hind end to speak of--very odd, as usually the ribs are the last thing to go.

I'm terrible at guestimating weight, so I have no idea how much she would need number-wise...but she's come a long way! She looks great =) What have you been feeding her?

well she is stay with my friend at the moment. but, she is getting fed bermuda hay (as much as she wants), grass, and some grain. i cant remember the percentages. but whatever it is she is doing pretty good on it. she is doing the same regiment for nakita that she did to put weight back on her mustangs. so i wont complain. she is looking great to me.
