My horses (and one of the cats)

Just want to share some pics... :)

This is Jemma. Just turned 4 years old qh. I got her as a yearling - she was stall kept 24/7 for 6 months at least. I was looking for broke big youngster and ended up with tiny unhandled (never even brushed) yearling. The owner of the farm I brought her in said I'll be lucky if she'll be AT LEAST 14'2'' (she was 13'1'' at most at 20 months old). She grew to 14 hh in 4(!!) months (no special food or anything). Now she's 14'3'' (which is what she suppose to be by her bloodlines and string measurements).

This is Kiara. She's 3.5 years old paint. I got her unhandled as well as yearling. She was running free in field until month before I got her. That month she spent in cow stall in mud up to the knee 24/7 tied with the rope around her neck. I guess it did something to her mental health as she's VERY strange horse. She doesn't like strangers, and some other issues as well (as trailer loading - ha-ha!).

This is my blind cat. We found her when she was 3-4 weeks old and starved almost to death (NEVER seen such a skinny kitten in my life). Plus as a bonus she had really bad and old eye infection, so ended up being blind. She's the biggest out of my 3 cats and very silent. However she perfectly knows all of us and always can find the laps to sit on. Lol!

Good all your animals found you Kitten They all had pretty sad beginnings. I love your blind kitty, My only house cat is a bitey cat. She thinks biting is a good thing She was about dead when I got her and got worse. Had severe case of fleas that had about drained all her blood. Then her immune system was compromised so she got ring worm. Her mom had abandoned her before weaning :( I bottle fed her for a month and she had to have daily baths for the ring worm and medi put all over her little body. I guess that made her mean because you can't pet her much or she will bite. Shes almost 9 yo. now so I guess we have grown used to each other. She looks a lot like yours.

Thanks, folks! :)

Vida, I think they are all lucky too (how modest am I, hah?). Although my horses don't think so sometime. Lol! Here is pic of all my cats: blind one, one is old (I found her left on street as baby), and the left one is year old from PetsMart (saw her as 8 weeks old and just took her home). My both dogs (from shelter as well) love cats.
