Rescue mare thoughts

This is a little 13h mare I rescued a week ago, she is approx. 7 yrs old She needs weight, and to build muscle for sure and some good grooming. She is a really sweet mare, very curious, not spooky that I've seen and will become just a trail and around the farm for fun girl . not the best pics, but like I said I've only had her a week and we have had some really nasty weather so haven't gotten to get better ones yet.

my impression is that she's a nicely put together horse, and with good food and some muscleing up, she'll make a Very nice tool around for fun horse.

Thanks, I just happened to come across this little mare listed for free , they just wanted to get rid of her ...and saw the condition she was in and just took her!! not much phases her, she's a really sweet calm mare. I think maybe I lucked out and found a diamond in the ruff with this girl! The kids are all in love with her and have been helping me take care of her, trying to teach them all responsibility and compassion. I have started adding soaked shredded beet pulp to her feed, and have ordered an equipride equilix tub for her that I've had great results with before...

Pretty little mare
She has a rather upright shoulder and consequently her neck appears to be set high
Front legs seem to be alright
She seems bum high in a few of the photos
Her back is just a tad on the long side but not bad
Hindquarters have a nice shape to them and will improve with muscling
Back legs give the impression that were she standing square, they would be correct
Do you know what breed she is? She almost looks like a Tennessee Walker or possibly Standardbred cross...though with a pony of some sort to account for her lack of height lol

I was told she came off of a farm in Colorado specializing in quarter horses and paints , and that they ran into some money trouble couldn't care of the horses any longer and a lot of the younger ones had stunted growth .... this mare was 2 when she was transported to Georgia.... I was told she is just a paint that was stunted in growth.

You sure she's 13 hh? She looks bigger. She is super sweet, I bet you'll have a different horse next year :). She has a nice solid build.
