Introducing Lily - saddlebred appaloosa. :)

Im gonna be riding a friends horse for a while as my friend doesnt have the time due to work hours, and only has a day off on sundays.

This is lily, shes supposedly 15.2hh but i dont think shes any bigger than 15hh.
shes a saddlebred appalosa, 9 years old & has done some showjumping in the past. she is extremely fat, and a few people have asked if shes in foal lol i can promise shes not, its just a rather large grass belly lol i discovered shes not a fan of being tied up outside, as she threw a strop and was doing little rears & stamping her feet, but she calmed down when i gave her a hay net. i cant ride her for a couple of days as she has a swollen leg, from her mud fever boot that slipped down while she was in the field. shes not lame, its just a little warm and swollen so she'll be fine in a day or two.

what do you think of her? :)

I bet this horse will give you a run for your money! She'll be unlike anything you've been riding lately. YOu two will have a lot of fun. She is cute. Funny mix and rare in UK , no?
She doesn't look fat so much as needing worming. She doesn't have a fat but or cresty neck.

im guessing she'll give me a run for my money too, i took her for a walk just round the little block for 15 minutes today, she was very forward going & dragged me the whole way, & was snorting at everything lol shes not spooky at all though so im glad about that. & yeah shes an unusual mix, ive never seen a saddlebred over here. she looks ALOT bigger in person, i actually thought she was in foal, but the girls owner her for over a year & theres no stallions at our yard so shes deffinately not lol think she just needs a lot of exercise, poor girls just been left in the field for months. im hoping her leg will be better by tomorrow, i cant wait to ride her
