I went out today and Beautiful was stocked up in the back legs--especially the back left. It scared me at first, but when I haltered her and picked out her back hooves, there wasn't any unusual heat in them that I could discern.
Also, I walked her around and she seemed to do okay.
I think she's eating too much. Everyone's feeding her, and sometimes, she sticks her head through the bars and steals food. I'm not sure how much of this she has done, but her neck is starting to feel pretty fat!
So, I'm putting her on a diet tomorrow and I don't think it will take long for her to drop pounds in this cold weather. She's going to be ticked because she LOVES to eat.
Any ideas or suggestions?
