Barn Yard Shuffle

We have a visitor in the barn lot for a couple of weeks. 
 My sister's horse Ali foundered.  You can see she got a little fat.  That, in combination with the early spring with lush grass and L working late in the evenings because of tax season, created a problem.
So now she's completely off grass and taking bute for pain.  I'll take radiographs this weekend to see how bad things are.  Hopefully, some weight loss, a grazing muzzle and light exercise will get her back.

She is kinda chunky! My mare has a tendancy to be overweight but I dont think she should founder but I am not gonna leave her on grass all the time or she will be even bigger.

Well sounds like she is in just the right hands to take care of her
