Well, it's been a little over a month since the vet assessed her as a 2. I think she may be a 3 now, not sure. Her ribs still stick out so much that I don't want to actually use a rubber curry in those areas because it looks like it would be painful to her....you could wash clothes on her sides I bet. Her back has filled in some and there are little pearls of fat developing on her tail.
Currently she is getting free choice paririe/brome round bale. We have worked up to a full scoop of Senior and now we are starting to slowly add other things We are also putting her in the grazing pasture (fresh, live, growing uncut prairie grass about an 2 hours a day...this was slowly started with 15m a day and then we add 15 more minutes every 3 days. We want to be able to put her in there a few hours a day which is the maximum allowed at her barn and only underweight, pregnant or nursing horses are allowed in there so that it doesn't all get munched down.
She is cantering on her own while turned out in the arena and plays a little. Not really big bucks and jumps like Cinny does, but she crowhops around a little. It's a sign that she's feeling better I think.
