But, good job, she's looking great now
Imported from Belgium as a 2 yr old and slung in a field with a haffy stallion (actually a US stallion imported) and about 7 or 8 other mares. I suspect that she had a foal at 3
. A 40 acre field, but no extra food I suspect and no worming or even care when they foaled
I weaned the baby straight away and wormed them, had her teeth and jabs done, treated her for mastitis and she gained weight very quickly. I had no idea what she was like when I got her, but she has repaid me in kindness a hundred fold.
The baby is now a very chunky 2 yr old.
