You forgot to mention the sway back mare with her hip bones showing.

She was pregnant again with her next foal when I took this shot. Maybe that is why she looks like that ?

Many brood mares look like that after repeated pregnancies. Unless you have them on a special exercise regime, they're unlikely to recoup their svelte figures. And since most active performance horses aren't bred, you'll find very few brood mares in an exercise program like that.

One of our brood mares was rehabbed into a performance program after we sold her. She never looked like a filly again, but did loose a bit of the 'sway back'...

Thanks Sandy.

Yes I will get you some when I can find a zoo or some where that keeps them. Wild animal parks in this part of the UK are rare.I would have to go over the boarder.

Thanks everyone

We keep all our mares in top shape regardless if they have been bred or not. We feel that it is important to have proper weight on a mare before she is bred again so she can handle the added stress of nursing her foal. It is very difficult to fatten up a mare in foal.
