Is Estrella supposed to be a registered name? If so, I can look it up and see if she is registered, if you would like.

She does look like she could use a few pounds and a bath.
She's not registered. If they do want to/actually can register her its close to $400.

She's actually at a pretty healthy weight she just like to stand funny for pics and makes her look unhealthy, she just needs muscle tone. and in the first pic is just after a bath, she just won't let us near her hind legs yet and it was also just a quick bath

I would say she could certainly be purebred; certainly not a show stopper, but probably a good ride, and she has a kind appearance. Just needs a few groceries and a bath, and she will look super again!
I agree bubba13 about the tobiano. She's 12 yrs old so yeah greying out with age.

and as i explained in an above post she's a healthy weight pics just make her look funny and just got a bath but won't let us near her back legs and it was a quick bath

She looks like she could be full.

She needs some more weight on her. Her neck is kind of tooth pick-y looking. Id she gained 100 she would look great. Please don't take this in the wrong way but if she did have more weight on her she would be able to gain muscle more. It depends on how much she works her. If she does then her body will be eating away from her muscle after it has with the fat.

The mare is really not underweight. Saddlebreds are lean and "toothpicky." All the sharp angles you see on her are not bones jutting out from lack of fleshy covering, but just her conformation. She does need muscle and conditioning over her topline, but she is by no means skinny.

Saddlebreds have been bred to be llighter and more "refined" looking than they were 100 years ago. Todays Saddlebreds are not like their great-great-great-great-great grandparents who, along with the Morgans, were the darlings of the US Cav. Back then they were a much more robust animal like the Morgans. Today they are much lighter boned and weight. A lot of breeding geared for show. Much like TB today are not as robust as they were a couple hundred years ago. As uses for animals change the breeders move in the direction of the uses. The show horse that today's Saddlebred are breed to be don't need to meet the work requirements that the US Cav horse had to. e.g. be an animal that can carry over a 200 lb load (standard load -saddle, gear, etc.. 90 lbs added to the troopers weight) 300 miles in 5 days and not be broken down.
They have been bred into a lighter breed today. Heavy or light, they are a good riding horse. I do love the times when I come across a heavier Saddlebred. Nice seeing what had been the normal size long ago. The way my grandparents would have remembered them.

This is my growthy, slim saddlebred yearling colt by RA Hot Every Night. He's an actively growing yearling and not as slender as this mare.



This is Harley's mother Peppermint Patti right after she went Res Ch at Color Congress as a 3 year old. Again, no where near as thin as the above mare.

That mare needs groceries, she is NOT a healthy weight.

Id bet her teeth need floated.......
Yes, its mostly muscle she needs, but she could use a few pounds. Especially if she is going to start working the horse. If she is in this shape and work begins, it wont be long before she shows ribs and a spine.
Free choice hay and a float by a dentist..........

I believe she just got them floated and she is on pasture with hay twice a day. She has already gained some weight.
