Lizzy, how is she looking??

For those that know Lizzy and the neverending weight battle here are some recent pictures from today. I feel like she has picked some weight back up.

Let me know how she looks. I can feel the back ribs but barely feel the front ones.

She looks good to me but havent seen her when she's skinny either. Is she a older horse?

Yes she will be 20 in March. She was my rescue and well it's a long story. I could find the older posts here that pretty much tell the long story but the short version, she was a rescue and sick, since June it has been a battle to get weight on her. She was finally doing good then when the cold hit she started losing again. I changed around her diet and she looks to me like she is gaining again.

Unfortunately I do not have older pics on this computer but I will see if I can find some old threads of mine.

I looked at the older thread you put on here id say she looks a ton better from back then.Oh I love her braided tail really looks nice. You keep her so nice and clean looking most grey horses I see are dirty looking all the time.She could maybe use a little more weight but id say she looks good even if she didnt gain more. Then again iam not seeing her in person and able to put my hands on her. As they get older it does get harder to keep weight on them. Probiotics really help my old gal of 26 years when she doent get then she drops weight off so I always have it on hand.

Oh thank you. She looks clean because she is blanketed lol. She's actually really dirty. I would like at least another 50lbs on her. She tapes at 849 right now.

We were supposed to go on an endurance training ride today but I am sick so now I am stuck at home doing homework, ugh.

She is improving, you have to accept that she is a narrow type anyway so will never look like a quarter horse - or even the sturdier arabians we have in the UK
I've lost track of what you're feeding her now but I think she has access to hay all the time which helps
She had such a bad life pre you getting her she was always going to be hard work to get right plus she is such high energy so burns up a lot of calories working
Might be a good quality complete feed (low sugar/high fat with all the vitamins and mineral balanced) would help her through the winter and put on the extra pounds you want

Thank you. We are getting some good alfalfa hay this week too so she can have a few flakes a day. She is very narrow but I knew that wouldn't change.

She is way to high energy. She would prefer to run everywhere, or her pretty little prance.

I'm to nervous to give her a complete feed due to the last time she had constantly runny poo and laminitis. And that complete feed had pre/probiotics in it.

Looking much much better. Looks like the alfalfa is doing the trick
Btw, if she still feels cold, you might want to unbraid her tail. Clamping it down with lots of hair in it keeps body heat in.
If she is at ideal weight, she will get a little wider.
