I see her being a very sturdy little pony. I would not suggest riding her for at least another year.
that would get expensive lol,if i have the money everytime i will try to do that.
i dont have a round pen to work in.ill try to find one close i could use.i think shes gunna be pretty sturdy also. i dont plan on riding her any until she atleast 3

Ok..I would change the mineral block out every so often..Don't leave it until it's gone. It seems like they lose interest in it after it rains on it a few times. The 300 is good to feed to any growing horse, I've even fed it to my mare who is hard to keep weight on. I like mixing the all grain feeds with a pellet, hence the Safe Choice..it's also a great feed and when you do decide to take her off of the Omolene 300 you'll already have a good base feed that's she's used to. I would worm her again, but that's just me..and I like to use this


You can find it at places at Tractor Supply pretty easily..

You'll also want to go ahead and get her on a worming calender like this so you'll be able to keep your routine and get a very good start and program going for her..


A few sites that you, and Brittany, should look into and learn a few things are
Control equine internal parasites | Safe-Guard Equine Dewormer with fenbendazole

Purina Horse Feeds - OMOLENE

SafeChoice Horse Feed by Nutrena

Horse Training - What Can I Do With a Two or Three Year Old? - Training a Two or Three Year Old

Because of her small size and the fact that she hasn't had the best care I would definitely wait until 3 to do serious training with her...Now is the time for a lot of good ground work, rubbing a saddle pad on her, you could even ground drive her right now..but not sitting on her or riding her..Even sitting bareback can hurt her, though it doesn't seem like it.. When bareback, your weight isn't distributed like it would be in a saddle. So when you're riding bareback all of your weight is in one spot on her back and her back isn't developed enough to hold up your weight without stress. Even with older horses you have to think about these things..That's why it is SO important to know all of the details and facts about these things before jumping into it without thinking..

Not sure what you're reading in accordance to the Omolene 400, but you can feed it to any age of horse.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

I see long pasterns, bulky head, upright shoulder, lean through the flank, neck ties in low, weird gaskin. My diagnosis is that she was pretty thin at one time and has been fattened up, but still lacks muscle where she needs it.

The muscle will get better with age, exercise, and great groceries. She'll probably never have a babydoll head, but it will look better when she is older. I suspect it isn't as bulky as it looks because she has a lot of hair under her jaw.

I think she may be a little rough to ride, but will be a nice mare for trail riding or playdaying. I'd love to see pics of her again in 60 days when she has been fed up and loses that hair! Cute little thing, I love her color!

I would also give her a safeguard powerpack of wormer, she looks a little wormy. Sometimes it is hard to completely get rid of the worms in young horses with one dose, they just come back!

What kind of mineral block is it? Is it the slat block with trace minerals?

Your feeding the same feed as Brittany correct? I know she said she was going to get the information on what is in it in her thread.

Ultium would also be a good option - Purina Horse Feeds - ULTIUM

She has long pasterns, a longish hollow back, a wormy belly, a dull coat, straight shoulder and weak neck.
A cheap way to add calories and help her coat is corn oil top dress it on her feed or grain start with a 1/2 cup. That will help her tremendously and most horses like the taste, for the wormy belly light lunging will help, you don't need a round pen to lunge. About 5 minutes a day to start with, and 3-5 days a week, you can work up to more if you like but that's a good place to start and it will help her get used to the idea of being worked with. Do not start lunging until she has her feet trimmed, working her as she is now could do some serious damage to her tendons and her legs in general, once she is trimmed don't overwork her as that will put strain on her growing bones and tendons. Never lunge her for more than 20-25 min.

She looks like a growing filly, she needs muscle and feet done but honestly I don't think we will fully be able to tell until she's fully grown. Pretty little filly though I love her blue eyes.

You ask for a critique, but without any reference to health. Almost impossible really, since I feel her health might have a lot to do with her appearance.

Others here, have given you lots of very good advice on feeding this filly. Get her off fescue grass/hay asap. It just isn't good and can be even dangerous. Do a google search and you will get much information.

I see she is 2 years old. How tall is she? Do you know anything about her sire and dam?

Only going by the pictures, it is difficult to tell a whole lot, since she has a winter coat. She might be more lean than she looks, under all that coat. If she were in good condition, I don't think she is long backed. I do think she might be a bit straight in the rear. That might look better if she were more muscled.

Her pasterns look long, but that might be because of hoof length, which I can't really see very well. She definitely toes out on all four feet. She is very narrow in body. Her neck is short and hollow. That tells me at some time, she has been severely malnourished. It will improve with good condition. Can't do much about her head, but once her neck improves, her head will not appear so large. Actually, I think her head is not too large for her body.

She does appear goose-rumped and bum high, but that could be because of her age at this point. With good care, she could become a cute little pony. I tend to think she will never become horse size. Certainly do not allow anyone to ride her, until she is in perfect condition and well over 3 years old. She needs time to recover from the obvious poor care she has had in the past.

Is there any chance this filly is bred? Just asking.

Here is a pic of one of my daughter's little Gypsies, at 2 years and 1 month. While I don't expect your filly to have the same type bone, your little girl should end up looking in as good a condition as this one, with good care and proper feeding.
