Owner ran out of money, she shared 2 flakes of straw a day with her buddy. As soon as she got to eat, she started shedding like crazy

It usually takes one heck of a lot not-eating to let a Hafie go so down, even with foal a foot. Do you know what situation she came from?


But, good job, she's looking great now

Yes, she's a lovely sweet natured haffy (her foal is running behind). I went to buy the foal and bought the mum too, the whole herd were like her but fortunately the "breeder" was selling them as she had no hay for the winter. She was 5 when I bought her, I backed her the following Spring and she is just a wonderful little horse who always tries her hardest. We have done dressage, xc, beach rides and lots of fun hacks with friends :) She is a total star.

Thank you

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.

A bit more muscle and weight, plus her coat is looking healthier. She also carries herself much better.
