    She looks very skinny.
    But I bet you cuold get her okay. She looks fairly healthy despite the skiny. So i'd say she'd be okay.
    Fatten that mare LOL

    I have to agree it is a bit worrisome to see how tiny she is to be that in foal. In your first thread when you said she was in foal, that's the thing that came to mind. Hopefully things turn out ok. Donkeys are not very big to begin with so maybe we can expect a much smaller baby than normal because it's not a typical pregnancy.
    I think once she gets some groceries on her and some muscle tone she should be quite a nice mare. Her confo isnt bad at all and she's got quite the leg on her.

    Glad to see she is ending up in your hands, at least we know she'll be well cared for. Congrats on your new horse!

    She's not a train wreck. She's just skinny. I think you made a good trade, you have the time, patience and know how to turn this gal around. Not a doubt in my mind that by this fall she'll look like a completely different horse.

    She seems to have a decent confo, nothing obviously wrong that's screaming what the heck have you traded for.

    She has the kindest face and eye, you know walkers...They can be some of the sweetest things on earth. I'm sure with more groceries she'll get more pep but I don't think she'll do a Jekyll/Hyde flip on ya.

    Congrats Jenny!!!

    Wow, she looks so much better!

    Maybe there is a baby in there after all ;)

    She's very cute.

    Oh she looks much better already! I can see some interest in her eyes now! I hope the baby will be ok.

    Yeah, she looks so much better. And that belly does look big compared to the rest, hahaha. She has a very patient look to her face, and there appears to be a spark of hope in her eye. Lucky girl to have you.

    She doesn't look like she is going to foal in a month or so. Did they get her preg checked?

    Feed her some unground flax seed, it does wonders for their coat and will also add weight. Rice Bran oil is also great for adding weight.

    I was just going to ask for updates!!!

    She looks good!!! I can see it more in her head carriage than in her belly, tho she does actually look preggo now.

    How's her attitude?
