Churumbeque- I last saw her myself on Thursday night, because I feed her in the evenings. She was fed again Friday morning at around 6, I think, and that's the last time she was checked on. No one lives on the property, so it could have been as much as 12 hours (I came out at 5:30 Friday night) after the injury that I found her. I don't have any excuses, but I don't have any solutions either.
As for her not looking healthy, its because she's not. She's had a HARD time of it, as you might see in her other thread 'Stunted Yearling'. She's had a hell of a time. First being orphaned, then neglect with no feed whatsoever in a muddy paddock, then battling EHV when she first came to us and nearly dying. She was about 100 lbs underweight and weighed barely 300 pounds when we got her in late December. Add that to abcessing, a messed up shoulder, and lice- and she DOES look ill cared for, but I promise you that I'm doing everything I possible can to help her.
The greyish dusty tint to her coat is lice dust that I brushed into her coat Thursday, but her coat IS unhealthy. Its been the last thing on our minds though with all of her health problem though, honestly.
