Gaited Rescue

I was given a TWH mare yesterday.

I do consider her a rescue, because she is severely malnourished and neglected.

She's a 17 y/o black (no white at all) TWH mare reg. TWHBEA and RHAA (I think)... Don't have her papers yet but am going to get them. She's several hundred lbs underweight and not in good condition at all, but at least now she has a loving home where she'll pop back up and live happily.

Pictures will be coming later, gotta go get a shower. Lol...

to you

Just a word of caution:

Please get the vet out to examine her. Not only to get some input on the best approach to feed her but, she may be in foal

I read more often than not about rescued mares ending up putting a baby on the ground and nobody from her past knows how that happened.

A lady, I am forum acquainted with, bought a drop-dead gorgeous mare off C/L that the owners claimed could not get in foal.

She is in Canada, the horse was actually not too far from me.

It was this past April or May she had the mare shipped to her. That foal the mare couldn't conceive is just now old enough to be weaned

The Sellers claim they had no idea how the mare got preggars. They insisted they "only' had her in a pasture with a stud that was six months old, therefore couldn't possibly have gotten her "in the family way".

Here's a news flash --- if those testicles are dropped, that colt can produce babies.

So please, as a heads up for your own self, have a vet check your mare to see if she's possibly in foal because that will completely change her rehab diet

Good luck to you

You lucky girl, I am jealous! I would LOVE to have someone give me Walker!

As for being preggers, that is always possible. That is how I got my currently 3 yr old QH/Fox Trotter gelding. I bought his momma for trail riding and she had an unexpected bun in the oven.

I know for a fact she's not preggers. Long story short, she's never left the town I live in in her entire life and since she left her breeder's home where she was used as a broodmare, she's not seen a stallion not once since then. She was pastured with two other mares only and has never been ridden or pastured next to, near, or bred to a stud since she was sold by her breeder and he sold her open.

Vet is coming in about two weeks to float her teeth and vaccinate her.

Pics on the way, too, but they will be in the horse pictures sub-forum.

I have a TWH and look forward to following you rescuing and nurses one back to health.
