IT"S FLOAT DAY!

Doctor said she wasnt that bad (teeth wise), but flattened everything up for her. He also said she is improving nicely and to give her time. That since she was older that it will take a little longer for her, but we are doing good! So that's good to hear! And her hair is so soft! She is a very pretty color! She also got a coggins today too!

Also in case anyone interested EquiMax this year seems to be the most effective.

Obviously, she is gaining weight and looking healthier, so of COURSE the coggins was negative! I'll get a new picture here soon, if you guys want. If not, I'll wait and repost her in a few months on a new thread....

Wow! I still can't get over those first pics of your mare. She is improving for sure. It just takes time and you're doing all the right things to help her. We have a couple of recent boarders from two different barns that have come to our barn with quite malnourished horses. And, they were paying board and still their horses weren't getting enough food. Hard to believe! I'm glad you've taken in such a sweet mare. It's nice to hear about your story with her. Can't wait to see her updates. She's going to look great!

He said he couldnt really tell bc her teeth were so worn down. He said she could be 25, or she could be 35. I think 27 is about right. LOL.... I cant wait until the rest of that winter hair comes out, and I'm going to try to take a picture from an angle that HIDES her ribs and backbone and flatters her! :) She needs one of those pictures I think! :) It's been raining her all week! :P

Here is some updates from Friday. One of her all perky ready for some grub! Then the other is her licking a salt block, but she is looking better. I am going to shave her next weekend. She still hasnt shed off all her winter hair, but everyone else has, so I'm just going to shave off the patches of long hair when I shave the minis!

Sometimes I dont even realize how much better she looks until I see the image blown up on here. Her ribs dont show real bad anymore! I have a feeling they are going to show until summers end.... They seem to take forever to hide themselves in meat!

Well all her winter hair fell off itself, and so I didnt have to shave her! I forgot to take pictures. My phone hasnt been charging right and so it's been plugged in my care almost constantly. But she is looking better! I am amazed looking at the last pictures I posted. I will get some up tomorrow! :)
