Thank-you so much for this information. I also wondered how I can view the minis you have currently for adoption. Thanks Ramonakaykay said:Hi ramona
With patientce and good nutrition and vet care she will pull thru. Our latest round of rescues here were also depressed when we took them in though not physically in as bad a shape as yours. They are now acting like happy horses in just one month.
When you pull up her lip her teeth should meet evenly. If they are back or too far forward then her bite is off and she will have trouble chewing properly. If this is the case you need to get a veternarian or equine dentist to work on her and help straighten her out as much as possible.
I spent good ,quality time with her today! I removed many burrs from her mane and tail and brushed it until it was free of tangles. I brushed her until her coat took it on a pretty (almost)shine.I gave her some treats and just petted her while she grazed on sweet,tender grass. I can't wait until she perks up her little ears and runs to meet me and her family. RamonaCountryHaven said:The most sorrowful look in the world is 'that' look. The 'I just don't care anymore' look. It's enough to break your heart if you ever have the misfortune to see it. It's something you can not turn away from because you know deep-down inside, they don't really mean it. They want so bad for someone to care, someone to stop for a moment and love them... but they've given up on it ever happening.
Your sweet mare will believe again, thanks to you. When it happens it will make your soul soar. Nothing compares to the moment when they realize you love them, and I really think their love is a million times deeper for your gift.
Bless your heart.
