Ransom Update

I was recently informed that someone is worried about Ransom being skinny. Ransom has only been here for a total of 39 days. This is Ransom at the adoption.

This is Ransom in Amanda's trailer on the way home.
Ransom at home. He was just unloaded out of the trailer.

This was exactly 8 days here. As you can see he is slowly starting to fill out. His hips are not sunk in nearly as bad. This was last week, I didn't want to post it,but you can see he is looking better all the time.
Today, first time in yard. Yes he is dirty, but it has been raining daily here, we close to an inch last night.

I truly hope that this person that is so concerned about him, can see that he is gaining weight. He was skinny when he got here, and is looking better all the time. I wormed him on Saturday, and will have to worm him again next weekend, as he has a lot of worms. He also had ringworm on him, but his hair is growing back in now. It has been treated daily also.

Yes you can still see his ribs, that is usually one of the last areas on a skinny horse to fill in. But folks it has only been 39 days, give me a freakin break. I will continue to post photos of my boy to prove that he is continuing to gain and that he will flourish here.

  1. Hey there! I am so behind on blogs...we should all get paid a certain amount of time per day just to get caught up. :-)

    Do the people who are complaining about seeing ribs have horses? Either way, seeing ribs doesn't mean they are skinny. There are a lot of healthy horses out there showing some rib. I wonder if they think a big fat horse is healthy....

    Ransom is beautiful, and hugs to you for saving another mustang! :-)
