    A pregnant TWENTY-SIX YEAR OLD MARE came into the rescue last week...

    she isn't mentally sound and she's skinny. No one thinks she is going to make it through the birth :no: It is really sad...

    So prayers, and hopes are needed! It will be a miracle if the foal AND mother survives.

    I will give an update about how she is doing...today I saw her weaving back and forth :( ....she's really laid back and sweet, but she's way too old to be giving birth...

    The baby isn't due for a while...but you can deffinitely tell she is pregnant:(

    I somehow think she'll make it through birth. I do not know what it is but my gut tells me an angel is watching over this one :)

    It could just be the photo but to me she does not look thin! She looks old with a sway back but not thin. Try to get some better pictures with lighting so everyone can see clearly

    Yeah in the photo she looks in OK condition. I'll get some close pics. You can see her spine and hip bone, she has no muscle :( I will get better pics for everyone.

    What kind of fool would allow a horse that old to breed? If that horse doesn't make it thru the birth, then the previous owners of that horse need to be charged with abuse and neglect!!!!

    Sending prayers to her and her unborn foal that both come thru this safely.
