It's very early days , she will take a long time to adjust , she may even feel ' pinched ' by the pincers , the main thing now is that she has good shelter and barley straw / hay plus feed ( gradually ), I doubt she has been wormed with her last owner ? you have acheived so much already . The stiffness may be that the muscles are having to cope with new stresses like us after a had run , it may be worth keeping her in a smaller area so she doesn't over do it . It's worth chatting with your vet too , ask him or her how best to help equines after babouches
phone me anytime if you're worried xx

to help, they were very happy to see new people

Donkey was done today, he's very sweet, he was actually
easier than Charlotte, the farrier thinks he's about 16 years old




Ella being all 'oh poor boy"



A kiss from the farrier

Fantastic progress cheers Your farrier is amazing to get that far so soon , ask him if he wants a mention on here as it would be great to recommend him if he isn't already full
You have done great with them Jann and family and of course Julie

Thankyou ladies Very Happy
I'm really surprised at how fast they've become friendly, it's
nothing like the abused and neglected horses and ponies
we've taken in, it takes the m ages to get their trust back
Donkey (named after Donkey from Shrek) has been beaten
though, he's very scared of hands Crying or Very sad
How many men do you want Pen (gingerbread men of course)
and yes I do mince pies with homemade mincemeat, I
put them on at 1 euros each
