Well, once you have a bit more weight on them it will be easier to see the breed. They are so sadly thin and in poor condition

You are doing the right thing is letting them gain weight steadily rather than feeding them a lot of hard food. If you can get them out on good grass that will help significantly.

They also need worming and a tight series of wormer as they gain strength.

I am concerned that the vet cannot say how old the colt is. From the pictures he is certainly very young, probably a n older yearling or two year old. I am only saying that because of his tail length.
A vet should be able to easily state a horse's age by his teeth when it is eight years or under. A yearling will have all 12 milk teeth grown through. A two year old will begin to get its permanent teeth through and the centre front will loosen and start to fall out ages around 2.5 years.
smrobs, Clava and smguidotti like this.

his teeth are really scraped up she went by how smoothe his teeth were I questioned it cause I don't think he's over a year and she double checked and said about a year but first was 3! She is a little questionable on some things but others I like about her and they are on a 6 week series of wormers start off small wait 2 weeks another wait 2 weeks another of differant types and levels all vet perscribed i've also been takeing update pictures since I got them as for grass I have a place i'm about to move them too we tilled the property up and planted bermuda rye and oats all at once they should start in time for the bermuda to root before the cold and by the time the rye roots I will start getting cool and I think the oats are cool weather plants too I have another person helping with the pasture they also are free fed round baled of hay they get one each every time one runs out it's replaced =)

I can't really tell either. It's hard to say at this time. Definitely post updates! I would like to see their progress now that they have found a good, safe home!
Just be sure to watch out for signs of founder. Hope everything works out great for them
