    OMG that poor baby... All those bites and injuries...

    She's one lucky filly. Not every horse gets a second chance at a happier life. Hats off to you!!! And since she's your only horse, she will get all of your undivided love and attention! That's actually very important. If there's no pasture mate, she will need more of your time and attention.

    Honestly I don't see anything that looks obviously deformed, but I'm not a vet by any means. You might as well go ahead and establish a good rapport with a local vet and get an official opinion. Good luck, and please do update us!

    Her left hip appears to be dropped, but I can't tell if it's just the way she's standing or an actual injury.

    Poor little thing looks quite the worse for wear.

    Yes she is tore up said the other horses were beating her up. She is standing with weight on all fours not dropped at all. I'm talking with a vet about coming out. Do you guys think she looks skinny to? I'm hoping she puts weight on soon. I'm glad we rescued her, she shall be spoiled now.

    Poor baby, she looks like she's had a rough start. Her right hip looks much higher than the left? I would definitely get a vet to check her over really good. We weren't sure our little yearling would ever be more than a pasture pet since she was so malnourished, but I measured her at 14.2hh yesterday. I think she finally grew up big enough for my husband to ride her. Here is her pics and brief story:

    I'm so glad her hips are even when standing on all fours! That's encouraging!
    And I know ALL about that spoiling issue.... Just be sure that you maintain quiet yet confident leadership while displaying affection and spoiling your beautiful filly! And you can't fake it with a horse! They read our body language and are super fantastic at picking up on our "energy" or "vibes." If you're unsure or have moments of doubt, they'll know it every single time and try to exploit them!

    She is a little skinny.. and what's with that sore on her neck?

    She is really getting beaten on out there.. is there a way to separate the ones that like her and the ones that are being a little too aggressive for such a little thing?

    I would have the vet out to check her hips..

    Another horse at that guys place bite her, she is our only horse at the moment. I have owned her a total of 2 days now.

    So she was pretty beat up before she arrived too? She's just got a lot of scars going on.. and sorry it slipped my mind you haven't had her long :)

    But yeah focus on getting her weight up a bit and have the vet check her hips to make sure she is going to grow up without any pain back there if it can be helped
