That litle guy is cute is what he is. Good for you saving him!! I think when you get him wormed, vaccinated, and cleaned up and put some weight on him you'll be able to tell maybe what he is. He is still so young and skinny to really tell what he is. He is cute tho. I'd be interested to see how he develops and maybe then we can determine what he is exactly. Very cute.....and a big THANK YOU for saving this little guy. What a BIG heart you have!!!!

If you can get some pictures of his teeth, people on here will be able to help you estimate his age. He looks like a yearling pony to me.

lol, you sure do!!! again, thank you for your big heart and saving these guys!!! I'd like to see your other babies too and see how things turn out for you in a couple months after they've settled in and actually had "good care" and a loving home. :)

It is difficult to tell what the pony's breeding might be. He and the other two are so fortunate you took them home with you!! The Palomino and Appy are both pleasant looking. With lots of TLC they will really take on a shining bloom to them.

$5.00? That is a deal!

Beautiful all and thankfully you rescued them from a certain fate. I don't know what the little bay fellow is, but I'm sure he will look wonderful under your good care.

$5.00? This should be a wakeup call for all of us who decide to breed. Somebody bred these horses. Somebody was not willing to keep them if they didn't sell. Somebody didn't find the perfect forever home for them. If they were sold, the original breeder didn't stay in touch with the buyer and insist of taking them back if necessary.

Breeding responsibility doesn't start or end, with putting two horses together who have viable reproductive organs.

Many of us could probably venture a guess but you should call a vet out to make sure! Once he gets healthier and some of that hair is taken care of (he's so FLUFFY!) it should also be easier to tell!
