    Today marks two weeks that we have had Pearl. She has gained some weight and must feel better. The dogs ran all around her, Carson the puppy ran under her belly. She finally got annoyed when Trip went up behind her to sniff her back legs. Pearl laid her ears back , began a squeal and was raising her back leg. I snatched at the halter, AAHHNNNTTTT!!!!!! And she stopped as quick as she started.

    She looks so much better! She's not nearly so sunken in the flanks, her tail head isn't as prominent and her topline isn't so sharp. She's really coming along!

    Before - she looked like a starving horse. Now - she just looks thin.

    I wormed Pearl yesterday with ivermectin. The vet said it was time and she would be ok. I've been worried that it might be too much for her starved condition. She has gained weight, amazing what regular feed and hay can do. She now knows that she can't rush in to eat, but must back up, stand and then I let her eat. She's coming along!
