Yep, she's a Percheron. We think either full Perch or Perch x Warmblood.

I'll send you a few.....
These 2 Photos are NOT my horse. They are of a horse that was at my old barn. He was 20-something years old. He was so sick(incurable and progressive disease COPD) and he was in this condition for 3 months before me and a few others finally convinced her to put him down. He was swaying and couldn't hold himself up so he had to lean on the lean to to keep himself from falling over...and he was foaming out of his nose. These were the last pictures I took of Peanut. This was him trying to eat. His breathing made it so hard for him to eat. Also the date is wrong on the pictures I never bothered to reset my camera this was last september.

This was a picture of Phantom the day after we moved him from my old barn(where the above horse was) to the one I'm at now. He looked horrible I was so upset.

And this was him the other day =D

I might have some pictures of TC when he was slightly overweight....I'll have to search around.

This is Kitty. A 8 year old Quarter Horse. The first picture was in January. I really have no idea what's going on with the bit. I think I was trying to hold her head up or something.

The second picture is of her today. She's still pretty chubby but it's getting better.

I am very curious to see what you guys would rate "Bones" when we first got him since the Rescue lady said he was a minus 1.

You can find the 1st picture on my thread "Urgent help need for rescue" on page 2, I think.

Also a big thanks to Hunter65 who posted the pictures for me since I am so tech challenged.... Thanks again Hunter65

Rate Vint please. She was pregnant so she doesn't have any muscle. But she ended up carrying twins and aborted them 10 months in. The 9th month she lost a lot of weight and we still don't know why. She's a very high maitenence horse and in the 2 years I've had her she's always had a few ribs showing. Anyways rate her for me if you could, a lot of people are giving me trouble, told the old owner she looks like a skeleton. Old barn owner went in her stall, removed her blanket and took pictures of her. I know she's ribby and lacks muscle, she is improving and once I feel she's in a good range we'll start work again but is she really that bad. Like some people are laying threats to report me. I don't want to lose my horse, I'm trying. Rant over here's my girl 8yr old TB
Hope it works.
