She looks straggly and I don't see much of a topline.

Isn't it supposed to be spring/summer there?

You didn't post an age, but the horse looks very young, like a yearling. Other than the shaggy, uneven shedding which makes this little one look unthrifty, I can't tell you anything from that picture.

She is underfed . Might need worming. She looks like a horse that is not getting enough of the correct nutrients. Sorry, but that's what I see. She could be really gorgeous if she were fed up proper like.

According to her barn it says the filly is 1yr 11 months

Have you had her since birth? It says you got her 2 yrs ago.


She definitely looks in need of a lot of groceries.

Other than that if you are looking for confo critique you need to post proper pictures for that.

*Insert something witty*

At first glance I just wanted to say.. bleah.. but that is really her over all condition. Looking closer she seems to have substantial bone and nice big roomy hocks. Due to the angle the topline is deceiving.

She looks very young. I suggest she have access to more feed and grow up more before you get on her and ride. I think with weight and growth this mare might be a "sleeper." She might be quite nice.

I have been feeding her rice bran and triple C.She is young, she is almost two years old.I have been worming her regularly.She had worms when I got her, and she was 4 months old at the time and didn't know anything about it until the veterinarian confirmed it by doing a fecal examination.The worms must have occurred before she reached one year old.She is slightly large now.I took some pictures of her from behind to get a shot of her belly to prove I have been feeding her rice bran and triple C but I can't upload the pictures I tried.I will have to ask the moderator if I can upload them on this thread if I can't then I will add better pictures Monday.I have to get a pasture for her because I had to leave my hometown due to a personal situation with a man(He don't know what he is doing when it comes to horses). He offered to train my horse and I am not going to let him because he trained his own and he bucked me off and I landed in rocks and my elbow was tore all to pieces the bone almost showed. I am going to hire a professional trainer that trains Tennessee Walkers.Thanks for the feedback.I am glad I came to this forum because I learn about horses from professionals.I learn things that I didn't know about.

She very seldom eats hay.She loves rice bran more than anything.She is not grown up yet.She is more longer now and she is a good size filly right now.It is estimated that when she is full grown measuring from hoof to knee she will stand 16.1 hh or better she's going to be quite huge people say.She is gaining weight and that is a plus.
