In regards to the mare... I agree there may be a reason that the mare is light on, however I wouldn't have submitted the photo to a National mag. I have one mare here who I would not post her photo prior to foaling due to her weight (did have a thread stressing about her weight though!) Weirdly after having the foal she is now in great condition, even though he is still suckling! On the other hand I have another mare who I won't put photos up now as she is too light on - her foal is a fatty boombah though! Plus her coat is absolutely irredecent (sp) so she is healthy, just giving it all to the foal.
