Triple crown senior is amazing grain. Really has helped my horse a lot :)

Would it be ok to post pictures of her? Maybe she's not as skinny as she appears?

Perfect. I would continue to monitor her weight, and with what you've described she should start gaining soon. It may not be huge at first, as older horses are harder the get weight on. As her body starts getting what it needs from the senior feed, she should start looking better and then the weight will come.

She deserves to have you around to take care of her. At her age, she's given lots and deserves to be pampered now :) Best of luck to you and her, I'd love to see some pics of her and updates are always nice to see.

Can't get pics to post

Hey so I can't seem to get my pictures to post in my message if you want I can email them or if you know how to get them to work I can try again. Had the vet out today she said she was getting better and I tried the beatpulp/grain mash she doesn't like it barely touched it.......

If they're on your PC, just go on advanced post settings and click the paperclip. Or upload them to photobucket and share the direct url

Yeah she's not looking so hot :/ I would be throwing a LOT of food at her.

How big are these scoops?
