    First of all, for me, the mare doesn't look anywhere near fat. If she were fat, since the BO is in charge of feed, she should have been tweaking her feed along the way, which she didn't.

    It is never safe to compare what/how humans act/react to how horses act/react. I doubt a human with a stapled limb is going to possibly have a "flight response" to some kind of stimuli (and even if...
