Bree's Before And After

This is Brianna, aka Bree, when I first got her. I only have one other pic that's really irrelevant. I was too scared to take photo's when she was in that sort of shape.



This is the new Bree!

Wow! You did an excellent job! Is she in foal now?

And I know what you mean about the picture thing. I had a horse that was terrible!! But I didn't take pictures becuase, apparently, if you don't have your own 'rescue horse' business and the policeman see a skinny horse in your pasture with other healthy ones, you mistreat your horses. Even if you have a vet bill!! (Oklahoma cops have such poor judgment sometimes)

SHe looks fantastic! How long did it take to get her how she is now?

Thank you!

She actually had a wonderful little filly in May.
I've actually had Bree for a few years now, just saw that picture the other day and decided I'd post. Why? Because it was mostly a dewormer issue. She suffered because someone couldn't bother with $15 bottle of dewormer. Pretty sad...

Anyhoo, here's her little girl this year!

Thanks!

If I'm not mistaken, and I'll have to double check my bill of sale to be sure, I believe I got her mid June, early July.
By November she was in really good weight.
Her problem was that she had not been dewormed. With the fight she gave me and my vet, I'd almost bet never had if I hadn't talked to her breeder.
Anyway, she had a MASSIVE infection of worms (both her and Rythm, the other one I bought) throughout their entire body that whatever they ate when directly to the worms.
I thought, at first, it was because they were in a dirt pen on a hay ration. So I brought them home, dewormed them, put them on the pasture and waited a few weeks to see if they'd gain weight.
That was a no go so I had the vet come out to do some bloodwork, and that's when we discovered her worm problem - intestines, stomach, liver... Everywhere.
So with a very rigerous deworming program and a loan from my back, I got them both back on their feet and it took about 4 months.

Its funny how people will shell out big bucks to but a horse, but that is where it stops, once they have it the care stops.. I hate seeing that, im glad you go her, her foal is a beauty just like she...
