Two year old and her mom
Hey guys! My local animal shelter picked up these guys along with two others and I went to see them the other day. I REALLY like them. They are both mares, mother daughter, and the black one looks to me to be about two but I'm not sure, I couldn't get a look at her teeth or anything. I am trying to convince my dad to adopt them, the mare for my sisters and the filly for me, but I wanna know what yall think. I always like to get second opinions :). They are both pretty short, the mare around 15hh (not sure if that is really considered small but it is compared to my 17.1hh tb :P ) and the filly smaller than that but obviously not full grown yet. I am 5'7" and 120, am I too big? I would start her-I have never personally done it but have experience and knowledgeable horse people to help. I'm thinking wait until the beginning of next year to start the filly and if the mare hasn't been broke yet, then start her this fall. So what do yall think, good prospects? Does the mare look kind? She looks like a red dun to me, what about yall? She was really sweet and gentle when I saw her. What about the filly, any thoughts on age, confo, breed? Sorry this is so long, thanks to those who can help!
