Before and after of my slaughter rescue

So once upon a time, some people had their Morgan show stallion jump the fence and breed their qh x welsh trail mare. Once the resulting foal was old enough to wean, they dropped her off at the auction mart. When the little filly entered the ring the only person to bid on her was the meat man. He was an extrely good guy and a good friend of ours. He called us after the auction, knowing we were looking for a yearling or so horse, and told us about her, and said if we pay back what he bought her for we could have her delivered right away. That was back in February 2011, now she's three years old, started under saddle, and probably the most willing, eager to please horse I have ever met!

Her name is Sadie. We were told she probably wouldn't get more than 14.2- 14.3 hh but she was sticked this year at 15.1hh. I've just started her under saddle this march, and she is just excellent!

And a beautiful mover!
