This is my mare MysTori. She's a 6yo dappled palomino Thoroughbred, Percheron, Quarter Horse cross. She's about 16.3hh and 1300 pounds. She's a bit overweight right now because of being laid off from a suspensory ligament tear.
Thank you :) She has a great trot. Long strides and smooth when ridden collected. Her movements are perfect for dressage. These pictures were taken last week and she just got her feet done yesterday. The farrier was busy at a show so I had to wait. It's also hard for her to put extra weight on her right front because of her leg injury so we have to do her feet when her leg is feeling good.

With a ligament tear you want to get weight off her. NO grain. Grass hay and not the best grass hay.. and so forth...
I do know how to get weight off a horse... It takes a while to do when you can't do anything but hand walk them... She has to have grain for her supplements. She gets Safe Choice Special Care but only 8 ounces of it so she can have her supplements. She gets only 4 flakes of hay a day. She was off work for 8 months and had been on a round bale because the barn owner wouldn't feed square bales. I'm extremely careful about what goes in her mouth.
