Will she go on pasture? If yes, that should take care of her coat( and general well-being for that matter). If not, adding flax will help with skin, coat, hooves and a bunch of other things.
For building muscle quality protein and work.

Yup! My BO is pasturing her alone for now, in plain view of the rest of the herd...though her area is currently MUD =O

Not sure how redeemable her coat will be this year...she's clipped. You can't really tell in the pictures, but they um clipped her brown/black spots, and some of the random circles on her back. XD Forum seems be a consensus that clipping so late messes up the summer coat =/

I'm at peace with a funky looking horse, I just want her to be a truly HEALTHY funky looking horse! =D

I don't normally comment on conformation threads, and I don't normally go for mixed colour/spotted/paint horses, but I just wanted to say that I glanced at your photos and fell in love with her!

I love her amount of bone, I love love love her face, I'm going to steal her and make her mine

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

*shakeshead*.... I guess they clipped the bleached coat to make her more presentable. If she just started shedding she should shed out okay if she gets all the goodies...especially flax( I currently grind my flaxseed, but used Omega Horseshine before and absolutely loved it).

Shrop--thank you =) I know my husband would probably be aiding and abetting you haha.

I was wondering why they did something weird like clip a spot in the middle of the horse's shoulder! /facepalm. Gotta give em credit, maybe they wanted to give her a better chance at finding a good home!

Very long horse- long neck, long back, long pasterns. The good thing is that at least she's proportionate, bad thing is that those long pasterns could cause some issues. Her front feet also splay out really badly. Her legs also look kind of short for her body. However, her hind end looks powerful and her shoulder angle is very nice.

She's cute, but I think "nothing too athletic" will be a good career for this mare :) And good job for getting a rescue!

I like this mare! I can't wait to see more pictures when you start muscling her up and get her in shape :)

So, to update, here are her feet:



They will be taking them some more in a few weeks, he didn't want to go too far because she had some bruising, and on one of the feet, he said something about hitting "pink" when he was taking off the bottom...I'm guessing it means live tissue that would hurt if he kept going. Anyway, work in progress!

She's a pretty girl.
One question is she being quarantined from the other horses for at least 30 days?
