I though about fostering, but my boyfriend would not allow it. He knows me too well, Id get too attached and keep the horse.

Sorry! Sometimes I type way too fast! LOL

We had a Sheltie years ago. She was the best dog. We now own border collies because I found out the hard way how many health problems some shetlies have :(

Trinity is doing well. She still eats like there is no tomorrow. I keep telling her to slow down the hay will keep coming!

Her leg is still ouchy but a bit better every day

Trinity is continuing to improve and do well. She is now off bute therapy for the leg/stifle injury and thank goodness the swelling did not come back. I do believe she has already gained weight and is looking better. But I also believe her belly is becoming more pronounced. I havent been able to get a urine sample from her yet to test her for being in foal but hopefully soon.

Heres a new picture of her in her pasture. The fence is low because this is normally our weanling pasture LOL. But she never tests it.

Dang pic is too big. I will have to resize :)

my horse was a rescue and i personal think, yeah there alot of work, but in the end they are sooo much more loving..just because they've never had a person being kind to them and going that extra mile to gain the trust and love that they if a horse, is a total loss, call a vet have it put down, not send it to a slaughter house were they are going to go on a truck w/ god knows what conditions by the time they reach the slaughter house they've gotten dehydrated, beat up by other horses oof i cant think about it anymore...poor things!

Good for you taking in that poor soul :)
soon enough your going to fall in love, because she sweetness will come out, if she isnt too far gone
best of luck !

Good for you. It's always nice to know there is another person in this world willing to help out an animal who can't help themselves.

I'm glad you decided to help out and foster her. I would find it hard to believe that she would be pregnant, I'd be more concerned about possible worms causing a big belly, unless you know for sure that a stallion had access to her at one point or another. I also believe that euthanasia should not be overlooked depending on the situation, but I would always ask a vets opinion first, unless it was obvious that it would be the better choice, i.e. colic, or something similar. I had a 3 year old rescue, a cute grey and white arabian paint cross who's owner moved, and abandoned his two horses. I had worked with the horse for a year before the owner left, and for about 6 months after, but in the end had to put him down. It was hard and sad to have to deal with all that, as I had tried so hard not to get attached, since the owner had said he was coming back, but I couldn't help it lol. At least I can be happy knowing that I gave him the best possible year and a half of his short life, and that he was well loved. Even with that outcome, it was one of the most rewarding things I've done.
