Has she had her teeth done because if she hasn't then she won't be able to chew her food properly and get all the nutrients from it.

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.

Seriously?? I am sorry, but after all the round and round in your previous posts about the fact that she needs to be vetted and you need to know what you are feeding her -- two very simple things to get done, and you STILL haven't gotten to either of them? *head, desk*

I don't think criticizing her for not doing something ASAP is helpful to the situation. Though, OP, you should measure the grain so you can figure out how much she's on and if you need to add to it or lower it. Same with hay as best you can.

Also you should weight tape her before you grain her and keep track of it. Going off of pictures isn't a good idea either.

But you should consult a vet asap to figure out if she's healthy or if she's on the right track or if there are other problems you can't see with your eyes.

I think the OP was chastised enough in her previous thread about the necessity of a vet. Chasing this in circles is not helping, she has stated that she is aiming to get this sorted asap.

Lets leave it at that, shall we?

For those of you who are saying she should have gained a lot more weight in the time being, remember....she was just starting to get a good routine+got wormed in the last 2 months if I'm not mistaken. So all the progress has been in 2-3months, and IMO that's pretty impressive.

Now I'm not too good with judging weight gain, how much she needs still, idk if she should have gained more in about 2 months, or if she's good...and for those of you who can tell, how much more does she need? A hundred more pounds? Gimme a guesstimate please!

At least 100 more pounds IMOP. Then you can work on building up her muscle (topline, hind) and then she'll look like a million bucks :)

Haven't updated in a while, nothing too exciting. Farrier is coming out next week! Hopefully she doesn't kick him....I feel bad for the farrier LOL.

Also, my purple blanket is too big but I had to make do (it's a 78") so I'm trading it with my friend's 76", which also happens to be pink It'll do better for her new horse since he needs a bigger blanket.

Also went down to try her new halter on, and she looks adorable in raspberry and teal :)

She looks a tad fatter, but the pictures I took aren't that good, so I can't post any pictures.
