She looks like a different horse! Some palis have those smoky colors on them, I find it to be a cool look ! Lol..
She should start putting on more weight since it is summer. You need to pat yourself on your back. ;)
I had to shave one of my old old ones this summer he still has like a double hair coat,I shaved with the hair grain, and if he does not finish shedding out after this wave of heat , I will go back and do an against the grain body clip, but then that will probably mean having to blanket in winter ;( . And he has been dropping some weight, but he is 32 or 33 and it may just be getting close to 'that time'.

I always recommend offering horses loose salt as well as the lick. A lick causes a sore tongue so horses often don't ingest what is needed. Pickling salt is coarse and I know my horses really go for it. The lick in the barn, out of the weather is three years old because I set out a pan with about a cup of loose salt (2 horses) and replenish as needed. Someone got paid to research this, something I'd observed years ago.

Stevenson, that's sad to hear! But that is a good old ripe age! You must have been doing something right! :)

Saddlebag, does Tractor Supply loose salt or can I just used the kind at the grocery store?

Grocery store is fine. It comes in 2 lb boxes. I just finished replenishing the pan with another full cup of household/pickling salt. The last cup lasted two horses less than a week. If it gets rained on, as mine did, they just drank it.

UPDATE! Cricket June 22nd

This is Cricket Sunday! We got the go ahead to start getting her some exercise and try to build up the muscle! My 10yr old niece rode her out on both of their first trail rides, and we took them out for about 5 miles! She was a gem! And she didnt sweat as bad as I thought she would!

She looks better and better everytime I see pictures of her. She is one lucky horse to end up with you. Keep up the great work.

Another part of the family had another older horse in BAD shape given to them. I want to strangle people seriously! TAKE CARE OF YOUR ANIMALS!!! Do they have to look like a corpse before you realize that you can't care for them? Ok...end rant.....
