    Default rescue weanling filly - any tips would be helpful

    Some of you may have seen my post about the rescue oldenburg/tb fillies we got on the weekend.

    While I have my own weanling - dealing with these two skinny babies is something new to me - I really think one is quite young but details are very sketchy -

    I would appreciate anyone's tips that may help us in looking after these two - so far they seem okay and have really perked up after two days of good food and shelter from the elements as well as not having to fight for food.

    I didn't see your first post, but I'd have a vet out for a look over. Those babies are so fragile, they can crash and burn quickly. At least the vet would have a starting point, if you have problems in a few weeks.

    Kudos for taking them!!!

    Ditto that, I'd have them at least run a basic blood panel.
