Re: Sparkles ...WAS Photos Mark up, NOW frogs/bruising ... Dr Kellon, Lavinia ... anyone


Hi Sherry.
If I said 275, that was a typo. It should have been 375lb (The picture of her in the stall Feb 2022 I measured).
She has always been right around 380 from the time I got her until now.   She looks the same I think but I will update all of her pictures within the next few days. To me, she has always been slender looking ... course that is compared to my stocky Morgan pony and quite stocky MFT. 

The last I measured her food, I had calculated 7.6 lbs total for hay plus other food. Because we had such a frigid winter and she shivered so easily, I was def doing closer to the 2lbs or more on the colder nights. I think I was doing 5 to 6lbs of hay 2lb beet pulp beet pulp and continue to do so. There were times I was giving the TC Safe Starch when she was refusing the beet pulp. I was also trying timothy and teff ... I was very worried as she went through a period of not eating much and it was so cold! I will get more accurate measurements.

For her height I would expect her to be no more than 300 to a max 330 
Can you please tell me more on why you expect this? In all of the charts I have looked for, including the Universities, I have never seem numbers that low. 

Thank you again for your help.
