I think she is bred.

I did a favor for a friend. Due to the drought I allowed him to bring 2 year old filly here in exchange for some work around the farm.
A 2 YO red dun filly was delivered here Dec 1. I was told she was halter broke and was due her shots and had just had a coggins done. She was to be delivered Dec 3.
Got home Dec 1 and there she was in the pasture with the other horses.
No paperwork and nobody answering the phone.
This mare has never been haltered until they loaded her into the trailer. Never been wormed. Never had her feet trimmed. Never had shots.
She is not even a pure bred QH.
Got everything taken care of at my expense. She is even halter broke and has been backed about 5 times.
i was going to give her away to a nice family that came out to see her today and noticed she has a bag. A big Bag. i thought the 200 lbs she gained was good food.
She is built downhill, ewe necked and a large head. i don't even know what she might be gred to. Now i'm going to have 2 to get rid of.
This is the one mare on this place that I cannot see breeding for any reason. Shalom

Crap! Doncha just love people??

I wish I had room, I'd take her off your hands.. I love to foal watch .. ha!

Seriously, that stinks for you, but even homely horses are beautiful to someone!

Bless you for doing the right thing ...

Thanks I sure would give her to you to. No lie.
This is not the only mare that I don't know what she is bred to.
Aug 1 of this year someone chased a QH amre into my yard. I thought the mare got lose and they were trying to catch her.
They had turned her loose and wanted to make sure she was as far as possible from their house. Now my nearest nieghbor is 2 miles away they had chased her over 5 miles on a 4 wheeler.
She was very thin and tired. I called jesus on of thehands over to make sure I was understanding the spainish right. They did not want her.
It took over 1 month before we could touch her and 2 months before we could handle her. She was very head shy.
Great l;ooking mare and you could see pure QH. i noticed she had on shoes so we saddled her and she is very broke well trained. I was riding her along the road and several cars passed by. One had the young man on the 4 wheeler. Wanted to get her back I said bring 400 dollars for 4months and the sherrif. End of conversation.
Now she is due any day.
She is a very nice mare and I may retain her for use on cattle or breeding in the future.
i just would like to know what she is bred to so I won't be that surprised.
With her looks I'm pretty certain it will be nice not too hard tofind a home for. Shalom

Good grief dude! Who put the "drop your unwanted horses here" sign in your front yard?

I've been given a few "throw-aways" and for whatever reason, they have all been special horses to me ....

When do you think the little dun mare is due? and is she JUST two? bless her heart, growing a baby and still a baby herself...

From what I understand she will be 3 in June or July. If I knew how to post pictures on this forum I would let you see her. Shalom

If you go up to the top left of the page in the tool bar, you'll see "user cp" .. this is your control panel.

The very first link in the top left is to your profile page.

On that page is a link for your photo albums (probably on the right side of the page) You should be able to upload from there.

I'm whooped .. so off to bed with me ...

Shalom dbarabians...

Gah, there is just a never ending supply of stupid, worthless people .

Good for you accepting this poor filly and getting her the care she needs.

As for posting pictures, you can either attach them to your post or upload, copy, and paste them from another website such as photobucket or flickr.

To attach them to your post, when you hit the post reply button (not the quick reply at the bottom of the page), look for the button on the reply box that looks like a paperclip. Click on that and you can upload them directly from your computer hard drive.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

We have a lot of people like this since they got rid of the slaughter houses in Texas. When the drought came, people couldn't afford to feed their horses, and since they couldn't take them to slaughter, they couldn't afford to euthanize them. So we see horses everywhere - on the roads, starved out in their pastures, some basically forgotten and left to breed with the stud colts that they couldn't afford to castrate. They cut open our fences and drop their horses inside ours - which is suuuper dangerous for us. Not only are our fences cut, but our horses have been seriously injured when these beasts come galloping around looking for food. One of our horses went through his fence, and the other one nearly jumped out of her stall. We call animal control or the police department right away. We can barely afford to keep the quality level of our small operation going, and we have significantly downsized our quality breeding program in order to not saturate the market. But it's really sad when you see things like this going on, and it's hard to combat without bringing the slaughter houses back - which is another problem too.. :/

People like that just make me sick. There are animal shelters all over the place and horse rescue groups...all one has to do is google horse rescue and the state they live in...

Happy that you are doing the right thing. Good luck to you!

I don't know about your rescues and shelters there but ours are full and with hay prices the way that they are here, nobody is taking them right now and if you take them to the auction it's right at 10 cents a pound not even paying the fuel to haul them there.
