Some edema and swelling in her abdomen, chest, and legs
This Wednesday I was contacted by a rescue group here in Colorado, asking if I could pick up a very pregnant mare they had purchased at the local auction, outbidding the kill buyer. They had funding and a home for her, but couldn't get up to our area to pick her up until the weekend. I had room here at Bit of Honey Training, so I went and got her and brought her home. She's just under 3 years old herself, a paint with minimal white on her right side, and is very sweet, but basically untouched. She doesn't really know how to be led with a halter and rope, but she followed my handful of hay into the trailer when we left the auction lot, and then followed a handful of hay into the stall when we arrived here at home. She's very thin, but seemed to be doing ok.
