Before and After a Bonnie Update

I've not posted about Bonnie in a while more so because the "before" pictures look like she is a neglect/starvation case.  Which is the farthest from the truth you can get.

It's been a slow go after the initial recovery with the weight gain from her injury back in February.

I made some changes - she's getting 12 cups of feed - 6 cups of safe choice and 6 cups of 14% low starch low sugar pellet per day (over two meals), 4 flakes of hay when in her stall over night\day + round bale in their pasture.

She is looking much better - rounding even.  I'll let the pictures speak for me.

Still have a ways to go - but I think I can start to slowly bring her back into light weight and build some muscle.


  1. Remarkable changes! She's looking great!

  2. She does look better. Keep up the good work.


  3. You are doing something right....she has improved greatly!
    Sweet girl.

  4. Oh My!!
    I didn't realize how severely she had dropped weight!How long a time did it take her to loose it like that?

    100% improvement there girl.

  5. Wow! She looks fantastic!!! What a huge difference!

  6. Nice job! Bonnie's really filled out in just a month.

    Apache came out of winter thinner than I like but I've worked hard at making sure she out on weight and now she is mostly filled out. But next I want to help her build some muscle, too.


  7. well done! she has come a long way

  8. Wow, really nice improvement!

  9. Great job! That's a big change - bless her heart. :)


Happy Trails!
