Yes, I was kind of disappointed she wasn't bred but I know it is the best for her. She was way to skinny to be having a foal, though she has actually inspired me to help other horses in need. I'm also going to find out if she is broke or not once the vet gives her an okay to start exercizing again. If she is, I may get in touch with a owner that knows how to cut around here. Then I'll be able to learn something knew, but who knows, she might already have the disipline in cutting.
One thing that made me upset though, is both my mother and father acted like I wouldn't want anything to do with her since she isn't bred. One even stated I should get ahold of the lady and ask for some money back since she wasn't bred. For her bloodlines, I don't need any money back! I paid $250.00 for her and how good of bloodlines she has. Yes, she is skinny and all, though if she was healthy she would have probably been a lot more then that!
I'll be sure to update once she has improvements. Going to the store tomorrow to get senior feed, the shampoo has been ordered for her rainrot. Soon enough she will be in way better shape.
Ironically everyone around us are even more upset that she isn't in foal, they want to encourge me to get her bred later on. All I said to that was maybe way in the future, when she healthy, happy, and in her forever home and I know for sure she is. I'm moving in about a year, I need to make sure I'll be able to take and support both her and my other mare before I even CONSIDER breeding her again. If I do, it will be to a way better stallion and when we know for sure what all is up with her. Make sure she isn't a carrier for HERDA, no physical issues, stuff like that.
