    She has a sweet little Angel face. I love her star. All of these positive vibes and prayers cannot go unnoticed, right? She needs another chance at life and to be spoiled terribly.

    What happened to her Mama? I must have missed that somewhere.

    Endi.. if she is shivering she will need more blankets. That's not good, and they can get shocky from it. I would hate to see her relapse. Also I assume she is on some shavings, which should help keep in some heat, don't know if you ever stated. I hope the rescue is paying for the Vet .

    Straw is a great insulator. Much better than shavings. If she can't stay warm on the ground, get her on a thick bed of straw over the shavings.

Also I assume she is on some shavings, (actually, a good thick bed of straw insulates much better than shavings. It's because the stems are hollow and provide more resistance to the cold passing through.) which should help keep in some heat, don't know if you ever stated. I hope the rescue is paying for the Vet .
    And if you are paying the vet from your own pocket, I would be honored to send a few sheckles through PayPal to help out. I couldn't send much this close after Christmas, but $20 bucks couldn't hurt, no?? Or even to the rescue if they are covering the vet??

    Hopefully she'll be running and playing like that again soon!! Go Kenzie!!

    Kenzie is extremely lucky to have someone like you caring for her.

    I'm glad to hear your filly is doing better! My first horse Pepper was very sickly as a colt, not gaining weight, skin and bones, not growing and unhealthy. We thought we might even lose him. Found out he had bloodworms. Now he's 12 and healthy and he matured to 16 hands so don't give up on her! So glad you and the rescue organization are working hard to make her healthy!

    I agree... I know you haven't thought about asking for it, but I'd like to donate a little bit too, to help with her costs. Please give us an address to send a donation :)

    Me as well. We all want to help. If I can't be there snuggling with her at least I could help a little with the bills that she is acquiring.

    I hope this morning there is even more improvement and that she is getting up on her own, not feverish and ready to start eating to pack on the pounds.
