Rascal was rescued from a horse auction at the end of April. We paid $75 for him
Rascal is a registered American Miniature Horse. When we got him he was Skin and Bones! After letting him settle in for a week we did a bunch of blood tests and fecal tests. All of the blood tests came back relatively normal but the fecal tests came back with 500 worm eggs per gram! A huge amount in a horse, it can be a death sentence in something as small as Rascal! We've carefully been deworming him, gradually introducing a high quality, high fat senior feed (not because he's old, he's only 4, but because senior feeds are easy to chew and easy to digest, which will be great for him)
I thought you would all like an update on him!! He's now living outside 24/7 with a big run in shed and another mini as a companion! And he's doing Fantastic!
Here is he the day after I got him, he had litterally 5 inches of hair on his body! Under that coat he was skin and bones!
This is the end of may, after we clipped him and after he'd begun gaining a little weight
And here he is yesterday!
