HAF are you weighing her or taping her? I'm glad you're being so proactive about this, but just FYI tape measurements can only be considered accurate within the nearest 100 lbs. Also make sure you're placing the tape in precisely the same place every time and using the same tape. Good luck with getting weight on her, I know how tough it can be!!

Thanks everyone!

She's starting to go back into work this week slowly, she's getting her soaked alfalfa cubes and hay after her work outs so she can get some of those calories and such back into her after work outs.

I may put her on cool calories as well if she starts to drop weight again. Suggested by the vet, he hates stuffing loads of grain into horses.

The vet came out the other day for a friend, so I decided get his opinion on some things and I told him the wormers and everything else she was on/got and he honestly thinks she's just a hard keeper, seeing that she's on a 4+ acre grass pasture with all the other stuff she's getting and still has a hard time with weight.

He checked her vital signs, which were good and said its amazing how quite she was yet she is so alert to everything that goes on. Nothing gets past her. Haha. Which is a nice difference from last time he was out aswell. He also mentioned how much nicer her coat looks since he last saw her. Even with it being bleached like it is. So were on the right path!

He didnt charge me anything with was great!
