Jersey Girl's Progress

It's been a slow one. She's been here since November 2nd, and this is her slow progress. Pictures are in order from 10/26/11 (1), 11/3/11 (1), 1/2/12 (2), 1/19/12 (1), 1/31/12 (3). Her most recent difference was from the second to today, the thirty-first. She had a blanket for about 2 weeks when it got real cold, took it off because the weather has been nice, and wa-la, she is getting fat

She is getting fed Triple Crown Senior Feed, 5 scoops a day, and free choice hay.

Juts thought you guys that were following the last thread would be interested in how she's doing!

(The second to last picture is of her hip/back. It's filling out instead of it being a dip)

...and please no hating....I'm having a rough time right now with some deaths of friends, and last thing I need is Horse Forum drama. Thanks

Well she's slowly looking better. She's such a skinny little thing

I skipped from the first to the last picture and if you compare the two, she has made a big improvement still some way to go but well done! Has she had health issues?

Yes I'm very proud haha :) and as of right now, we're not sure of any vet issues. The vet has not been called due to family problems with the owner and me.

That picture of you two together is lovely.

I'm not hating, but honestly, if this mare is getting enough food, in three months I would have wanted to have more weight on her.
There may be problems between the family and yourself, but this horse desperately needs evaluating by a vet to make sure there is nothing lurking in her stomach so she can absorb what she needs from it.

If they refuse, they in turn are neglecting the horse.

Have you weighed the feeds out for her?

Duffy I know what you mean. I have yet to call out the vet, but I'll be sure to tell my dad and have him call.

And no I have not weighed out the feeds. It's probably about 4lbs for 2 scoops, so probs 4.5lbs for her 2.5 scoops.

The mare is still quite underweight. I agree with Duffy that a vet call is in order.

The reason I asked if there were any health issues is that I too would have thought she would have put on abit more weight. Maybe get her checked for ulcers etc. If you have a look at a thread that I posted a couple of months ago on the same kind of issue you will see my mare had no health problems and she put on quite abit of weight in the space of a couple of weeks just by being out at grass 24/7. Sorry I don't know how to link you to it.
