I rescued (bought) these two from a cow pasture where no one gave them any attention at all. The mother, Gypsy, is a foundation bred Quarter Horse. She looks like she has some belly weight in these pictures, but my vet assures me that she was extremely malnourished. The belly is from having so many babies that all her organs have shifted. You can count every rib and see her whole backbone. Patriot is a month old colt. He was never handled except to be roped and drug into a trailer with her. I'll answer any questions you have about them :)
Gypsy is the sweetest mare I have ever met. She tolerates us messing with Patriot like a queen. Patriot will now let us pet him and touch his face, though he doesn't really like ropes/halters because of his past. He's getting much better though!
All of the really good quality pictures were taken by my friend. She's aspiring to be an equine photographer. If you live in Florida and want pictures/video from her, feel free to message me :) She also made the youtube video.
I'm sorry about the weird order. I had it all set up perfect and HF deleted it on me :( I explained each one. I have many, many more pictures!! Patriot, 1 month old colt - YouTube
