Hello again. Earlier I was in a hurry and didn't really give a great description and didn't have very many pics of her.
So...Kit kat is 17.3hh and about 1800 pounds(?) When I first went to go and look at her in August, she wasn't that underweight. I gave the lady my word about buying her and she said ok. It took a month until I had everything settled with the vet coming out and finding the best place to board a draft in my area. When I went back in the end of september to buy her, she was skin and bones. The lady had like 10 draft horses and a few other normal sized horses. She hadn't fed them hay for at least a week and was giving them straight corn from the field. The other horses started loosing weight too. I tried calling animal control, but they couldn't do anything.
When I first got her to where I am boarding, the owner was like "OMG" what happened to this horse? Kitty was put in a pen by herself from sept-nov so she could build up weight and not have to compete for her food. Now she is living with the ponies instead of the big horses. Kit has become pretty good buds with the ponies, especially a little baby pony, so I don't think she minds. I don't know how they feel though:)
Kit kat had issues with being caught, having her head touched and having her feet picked up when I got her. Now, she lets me catch her pretty good, touch her head, but we still can't get her feet done. We tried to, but she fights it really bad. I think I will have to have her put in a stock or something. I want to start riding her, but I don't have a saddle yet and she's really hard to get on bareback. Both me and my boyfriend are really short, (i'm 5 foot and my bf is 5'6") so it makes it even harder!! Anyways, enjoy the other pictures.
