Darby and Rose

Posted on November 10, 2014

This pair was rescued from a bad situation back in September 2014. Here’s an update at November 2014 from their foster mom:

It’s hard to believe it’s been two months since Darby and Rose arrived. When they arrived, they were thin, had rain rot, had issues with even walking due to both low energy and over-grown hooves and were unsure of their new surroundings. They sure have settled in! Both of them are very vocal and call out every time me or the dogs go outside or I drive in from work at the end of the day. Rose really had issues even walking and now she walks at a rapid pace and will trot if she thinks she is missing dinner. It brings a smile to my face each time she does break into a trot. One time she even cantered a few steps! Rose is definitely the alpha-female. If Darby attempts to get extra bites of food from Rose, Rose will push Darby away and I have even seen Rose kick-out at Darby. I have included some pictures taken earlier today. You can see that they have grown a winter coat. Rose is still a bit ribby and with big belly so I am rotating wormers, but it’s it getting better.
