    i had posted about a month ago looking for help on my emaciated rescue pony. he's now been looked at by the vet and farrier. the farrier has started to help his feet out (he's slightly laminitic) and vet has given him a clean bill of health. he's had his shots, been wormed (twice) and i've also killed off all of his lice. hes doing so well and is a lovely little pony who is very sweet to my niece and nephews. i'm very glad i have him. he's a joy, here's BUBBLES!!

    Wow, he almost looks a different pony. He is so lucky to have some to take care of him the way he deserves. Cute little guy!

    It's amazing what some loving care and good groceries can give to a skinny little horse.

    He looks great!

    It's been a few weeks since I logged on but saw this post and had to comment.

    I'm so glad you saved this guy...there are so many it seems.

    You should be proud of yourself; you've got a special little guy there and he'll be so grateful to you for the rest of his life!
