Joviana with her foal next to her.Joviana - Female horse and her foal removed from the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range on July 23, 2012.  The horse and her foal were in poor body condition on the range.  According to the vet report, "both animals were very thin. Their Henneke scores were barely a 2. Other than the obvious lack of feed I saw no additional health concerns." 

The vet gave the following recommendations: "Given current forage conditions on the range, it seems unlikely to me this mare and foal would be able regain sufficient weight to survive if released out on range. In addition to the hay, I recommended supplemental feeding of an energy concentrate such as grain, introducing it in small amounts and increasing the amount slowly as they adapt to it. If the mare does not return to her milk or we determine a need for additional supplementation, we should consider more appropriate long term nutritional options for the foal."  To view full vet report please click here.
