I don't think he is. I think they're just using it as an excuse. I bet he's weaned completely and has been for several months, but instead of own up and say that the mare is skinny because they aren't feeding her right, they'll just blame it on the nursing.

If you look at the colt though he is actually in semi decent shape, and so is the other horse. So he could still be nursing and pulling her down some more. Simple fix though, wean the colt and give her some more **** groceries.

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

I actually thought the colt looked a bit wormy in the belly but that's probably because I was just looking at the poor skinny mare in comparison :(

Okay, this is actually frightening!

Look at how butt-high this gelding is standing on level ground. Don't think he's on level ground? Look at the second picture. He's standing on an uphill slant...and his back is level!!!!

I'll be honest, my colt was about 9 months before he was weaned because I had no secure place to separate him from his momma.

But, in my defense, she looked like this the entire time she was nursing. It probably would have done her some good if that big honking foal had drug her down some LOL

That boy needs some groceries and a neck, aside from being butt high!

Ok, I get that it happens sometimes, while it isn't ideal. But SHE had groceries to spare LOL. LOTS of spare groceries.


And yep he does look wormy, but that is why I said decent and not good shape. Actually he is gonna grow up fugly I bet:( and gonna suck what little life is left out of his Mom if they aren't careful. Poor girl. Does she not look youngish to anyone else?

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

That mare is 15. And I'm more worried about her STUD colt still being in the pen with her when his balls drop (which, if they don't sell them soon, they probably won't cut the colt and they won't move him, either, so she'll end up bred...again...in that condition).

I know the ad says 15, but either she has been used REALLY hard, or she is much younger than that. Or at least that is what it looks like to me. And yeah I saw where he isn't gelded yet.

At least he's a gelding! Instead of the usual "pretty colour equals stud quality"
