    You posted your "my new girl" thread in August - this horse looked fabulous. You have had her a little over three months and every bit of this deterioration has happened on your watch. Drought be ****ed, you have underfed this horse - why did you bring her home if you couldn't afford to care for her?

    He told me he took her because her last owners couldn't care for her Oh my, this horse has indeed not been doing well under your (Spur) care, I'm afraid. I'm a bit angry you lied to cover this up, that aside I do hope you take the advice both I and many other people have given you and feed this poor girl or find her a new home.

    Coming from someone who makes very little money but still has healthy, taken care of horses, this makes me very upset to think the mare went from this, to what she is now. You lied to me, you have NOT been properly feeding this animal.

    Do you live with someone? (You said you had a child, so I am assuming) If so, why can they not feed the horses while you are gone? Something must be done, the very least a round bale out 24/7 if you cannot be there to feed every day.

    I hope you are true to your word, good luck if you are.

    I don't understand what having a wonky work schedule has to do with you feeding your horses?

    Do you have a dog? Who feeds the dog when you are not home?

    If you can't be around to give your horses proper care and feed then you shouldn't have them. If this continues I pray someone called animal control, because these horses shouldn't have to suffer because you can't be bothered to arrange to have someone feed them.

    I'm just pretty amused that you'd have the audacity to call out several members on the state of their horses and claim your horses look better when you're obviously not very sure of their condition yourself. If you have to ask if they are in bad shape, then maybe you should rethink what you say to others and how it is said.

    Though she is not the worst I have seen, yes, she is thin. She needs at least another 100lbs
