I LOVE that dog! what a cutie!!
mare is nice too. needs lots of muscle. weak hind end and topline. long weak gaskins, skinny neck (but potential) long back. love her neck tie in, clean throatlatch and clean legs. I think fitted up this mare will look super!

I quite like this mare, except for her head which seems way too large for her body and is plain. Her neck needs some building up. That could be because at some time, she has been very thin maybe??

Her legs look pretty good. She might - just might, toe out very slightly behind. I don't think she's sickle hocked at all. Looks to have good feet. She does have a hunter's bump.

The strange thingy on her back, will have to be removed before placing a saddle however.

I was told by her previous owner that she had "reduced" her from a lady who didn't feed her and they just had a dirt paddock. But where she came from before it was pretty much the same, so she went from one not so good place to another. The first photo was about a month after I had her and the last two are from a few days ago, so you can see that she has gained weight from being with me. :)
With her neck we are working on that a she is a troubled OTT so it's her to get her to use it. But she is currently spending two weeks with me trainer to just gain some schooling!! :)

Ellie this mare reminds me a lot of my horse when I first got him. I think she will look beautiful once she gets some muscle and fat on those bones :)

Here's a pic of how my boy was after 3 months of owning him:

And then check my pictures to see a difference now :)

Keep us updated, I'm excited to see this mare bloom!
