Before & After 'rescue' pictures (Haffie mare)

Its been a while since I've been on here! I thought I'd share some pictures of a rescued Haflinger mare we got back in October. She was a brood mare her whole life, having 12 foals in her 14-15 years. She has since put her weight back on steadily, she had her feet correctively trimmed and teeth floated, now she has been started under saddle & is loving every minute of her second chance!

"Before" ( October 2008 )

"After" ( December 2008 )

She is such a rare & gorgeous girl that I am shocked by her lack of use, so sweet & easy going, we love her.

Thanks for letting me share!

Love those blue eyes on her!! She is looking MUCH MUCH better

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)
