I would love to see a picture without a rug and sideways on, because it will prove what you already think. She has improved a lot, her neck already looks so much better and she seems to have a lot more life in her eyes, and is that a tummy I see under that rug?
The beach pictures look as though she was underfed and unloved, I bet your glad to have got her back she didn't look at all happy.
Keep up the good work and more pics when you have time, they'll be good to look back on in a few months anyway just to prove to yourself she was as poor as you thought and sooooooooo sad bless her.
I've just basically left her alone to be a horse again and just done the bare minimum with her. I thought it was a tummy also! I really need to get the rug off and take a look at her properly but i'm more concerned that she learns to trust me and will willingly walk up to me before I start trying to handle her. She was a very calm mare when we had her previously she had a very deep and severe wound to her back leg and my mum had to dress her leg twice a day and she was on box rest and she stayed very calm and manageable. She has come back very spooky and anxious. I have a very good support system and I am working with my trainer to try and get her back to health. She is booked in for her teeth rechecked and once she is being handled properly again I would really like to get the chiro out to her for a once over. My most important goal is to get her looking and feeling good again. Thank you for your comments I wasn't sure whether I was making fuss over nothing but one thing I was sure about was that she didn't look happy.
