Cally was returned from loan to us during summer, as her loaner was struggling to keep weight on her and keep her sound.

When she arrived back home she could hardly stand, so the vet was called immediately and it was found that she had a fracture to her hip, under a small open wound, she had a fall a few days previous, but as she was still happily running around her field, her loaner thought nothing of it.

Her loaner had tried all sorts to help her gain weight, to no avail and we have to admit, this has been the slowest weight gain progress we have had but, after multiple tooth extractions and 100s of pounds of good quality hard food and forage and she is finally improving, she could still do with a bit more covering over her ribs, but she now has a nice round bum.
