Update on Little India *pics*

So I've had Little India for about 6 weeks now I guess. Slowly but surely she's coming along nicely. I've had her blanket on almost constantly since she's been here just to help. The less she has to work on staying warm the easier it is for her to gain weight. I feed her three times a day and she has her own round bale.

I had to share of course. She's nothing like the horse trader described her (wild, mean spirited, etc). We are doing a lot of ground work but she's only 2, I'm not rushing anything. When she's put a lot more weight on and filled out better I'll start worrying about muscle.

At any rate, here are some pics of when I first got her:

And this morning after I took her blanket off for her to roll around. Almost all of her rainrot is completely gone, she still has two patches of nasty on her hip bones and we're still fighting the chronic eye infections she seems to have.

She's looking much better! I can't wait to see her all shed out this summer. She's gonna be a stunner!
she also looks way less defeated than she did before.
Keep up the great work!

She is cute. There is an appy where we board who has the same domed forhead as India. This horse is very subordinant and picked on alot so has her ears back a lot. India is cuter. Looking good.

How are you? Morning sickness?

She is looking a lot better. You've been doing a great job with her. I can't wait to see how she looks without her winter fuzzies, and I agree that she looks much more alive and alert now than when you first got her home.

I'm exhausted lol, and my morning sickness is an almost all day thing. As long as I have something to snack on I'm ok.
