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.
