Lets hope so!

Don't know if its the picture or not but his right front leg does not look straight .....looks like a possible bench knee.

He certainly doesn't look to be stallion material.

Still crossing my fingers that she is not pregnant........its possible that because of her poor condition she did not get in foal.

Well thank god, she wasn't pregnant. That was a relief, scanned the uterus left and right, no foal. Now we can focus on getting weight and muscle on her, getting rid of the rain rot and all. I can't remember what she called it, but the reason she looks big and in foal is due to gas practically. She is being treated for that, she needs her teeth floated, and hooves done.

That is great news for Lena, Ladybug. However, I can't help but feel bad for you. I know, happy that there isn't another foal in the world, blah blah blah. But you were responsible and took everyone's advice on board when you were thinking about breeding your other mare. You decided to rescue another mare that was in foal already, and got ripped off :(

I am glad it worked out best for the mare though. Really I am :)

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I agree completely! And can't wait to see some more pics of her!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

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.

Add making sure she isn't carrying frame/OLWs as well.

Yes, and not carrying frame/OLW. That is way in the future, right now my main focus is her getting healthy and beautiful once more.

Well today I found out the abusive owner has had her for 11 years... That sucks! Hopefully it wasn't till recently he stopped feeding her or something. Gah. She got messed with by the farrier today as well, she stood pretty good for her, though they were in bad shape so she is up for another in May. Also on the 22nd she is getting her teeth floated, the vet said they were sharp and going into the roof of her mouth. So she still has a long road.
