New horse

I saw this girl on craigslist for free. I clicked on the ad and new her! My parents' neighbor owns her, so I've known this horse for awhile. I always though she was kinda ugly, but she is a sweet old gal and she was free. So I got her for my fiance to ride

These are the only pictures I have of her until I get her right now, not exactly confo shots. Just wanted to show people my free girl

I just don't like her short tail and lack of mane/forelock lol. Her tail gets chewed by the babies each year and has never grown back, maybe it will when I get her and she is away from the babies

Thanks, I'm excited about her, she will keep my boy company once he is gelded. And give my fiance something to ride instead of my tiny horse

That;s a nicely built mare. She will look really topnotch when she's in shape and under some nice western tack. Black with silver conchos would do nicely.

I think she looks cute!

However I only see 3 things.

Her neck is crested
Her back legs are camped in
And her back legs seemed cow-hocked, but I can't say that for sure since she was turning.

Good luck with your new horse!

For a freebee, she's absolutely lovely! I see also, she has that satin thing going on in her coat. Once in excellent condition, I'll bet you'll see that more and more. I think this was your lucky day.

Huge congrats. I'm almost a bit jealous.

You do realize she is 20 years old, right? Not that this will stop her as a pleasure horse (assuming she was ridden and has done something in her life besides be a broodmare).

If she has been used and is sound at 20 she is telling you all you need to know. FWIW I like her conformation (what I can see). If she seems over weight and has a lot of crest, test her for cushings before you take her.
