The pic of me with him was the 1st day I got him. Then the pic of him in his stable is a few weeks later. Then the one of him out in the field was after he got clipped then the rest are from 2010 I think lol
Here is Nico the day he got off the trailer. It took us a while to load him. While he was not underweight (he was actually a bit fat when he came to us) he was starved for attention. His owner bought him thinking he was a 'dead broke' horse...rode him once, got tossed. He caught him, ripped the tack off and turned him loose on 40 acres. He was more of a mental rescue. He had not been touched (literally) for atleast a year. He's well on his way and back to riding.
I don't really have any "before" photos, but I do know that she was rescued by the ASPCA in pretty bad shape, and when I got her she was nice and fattened up although she was 150 lbs overweight and had no muscle tone. They definitely did their job getting the weight back on her and caring for her after she had been neglected and starved, but it took awhile to get her looking lean and athletic...but here she is, and I think she looks great! :)
Oh, Jess she is so sweet, what are your plans for her???
Whatever she wants to do ;)
I've always wanted a chestnut frame, and she's so sweet and I know she'll be gorgeous once she's in better shape :) I should take pics that show her back, it's worse than the photos appear. Anyhow, she's a keeper, and what we end up doing will be english, but what specifically will be up to her... what she seems to enjoy/be good at. :)
Sonya was a rescue. I didn't get her from a rescue but rescued her myself. Her old owners had only bought her because she came as a package deal with 2 other horses.
They were either going to sell her, or send her to slaughter.t They had only had her 2 weeks. Didnt even give her a chance. She was on an acre and a half with 2 other horses, and that was the whole yard. I bought her on the tuesday and they were going to send her to the feedlot on wednesday.
Here she is the 2nd night I had her. Her halter was 4 inches too small, so I am guessing they had it on her for a while and never loosened it.
She was a little underweight, but nothing a bag of grain couldn't fix.
18 months old.
And here she is now!
And with baby, a little thin, but she is feeding a monster.
